Introducing The Paralegal Profession
Paralegals provide critical administrative support for lawyers, particularly in situations where extensive research and document creation/organization is required. It is interesting to note that paralegals can be found in a wide variety of organizations and businesses, including private law firms, the legal departments of large corporations, as well as various government agencies.
Although the demands of the working paralegal may be heavy, those employed in this profession benefit from relatively stable job security and a rewarding salary. According to the United States Department of Labor, the paralegal field will grow approximately 17% through the year 2022, well above the national average for the vast majority of professions. Industry experts predict that paralegals who are well versed in current computer skills and industry software will have the best chances of securing rewarding employment that fully utilizes their current skills. The current median wage for paralegals is approximately $46,990, significantly higher than the national average.
Given the fact that the path towards a career as a paralegal only requires an Associate’s degree or formal certification in paralegal studies, the Paralegal Associate Degree at Bramson ORT is perfect for both new students and mid-career professionals who are looking to begin a new career as quickly as possible.
