It used to be that paralegals advanced inside law firms from legal secretary or other support roles
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 1, 2008
As the law becomes more complex and our society grows more litigious, the public demand for legal representation continues to expand. This translates into not just a need for more lawyers, but more legal support professionals as well. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, paralegals will be among the top 30 fastest-growing careers in the 10-year period ending in 2014. Responding to this increase in demand for trained paralegals, All Criminal Justice Schools (ACJS) has launched a comprehensive, 16-page career guide for people wishing to become paralegals. The online guide can be found at http://www.allcriminaljusticeschools.com/faqs/paralegal.php.
“It used to be that paralegals advanced inside law firms from legal secretary or other support roles,” says Gerard Gravellese, career researcher for ACJS and former legal assistant. “While that still happens, it’s now more the exception than the rule. The paralegal career has advanced to the point that paralegals are taking on more responsibilities that require advanced training, and employers are demanding it.”
The paralegal career guide contains up-to-date information on paralegal salaries, certification, accreditation and degree information, as well as informative articles and interviews with experienced paralegals. It is designed to give people considering paralegal careers one-stop access to the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about choosing schools, types of degrees and legal specialty areas. Also included is a section on online degree programs, an increasingly popular form of paralegal training.
