Private law firms employ about 7 out of 10 paralegals

Paralegal schools introduce you to a wide range of legal topics, including the basics of the legal system, how to conduct legal research, about judicial decisions, drafting of pleadings, obtaining legal affidavits, and more. Paralegal programs typically include an internship where you will work for several months for a private law firm, public defender, attorney general, corporate legal agency, bank, or government agency.

Once you have completed paralegal school, you will assist lawyers in preparing for closings, hearings, trials, and corporate meetings. Paralegals support lawyers by interviewing clients, investigating facts, and researching and drafting documents for court. Paralegal schools can train you a role in civil law, business law, real estate law, family law, torts as well as other aspects of the law. Paralegals are an integral part of today's busy legal system. We have a catalog of paralegal programs in the US, Canada, and online (available anywhere).
