Legal assistants - sometimes known as paralegals - are responsible for carrying out a great deal of legal work in support of their lawyer colleagues. Legal assistants are not qualified lawyers but do have some legal experience or training. They will typically have job placements in public and private sector organisations and law firms, with different titles such as case worker, property adviser or contract assistant. Tasks include handling client caseloads, taking statements, researching cases, drafting documents and correspondence letters. Legal assistants need to be able to work well under pressure, be highly organised, computer literate, sympathetic and possess good research skills.
