Paralegals provide assistance and support to solicitors and barristers. No legal qualifications are required to become a Paralegal, making it the fastest-emerging role within the legal industry.

•Preparation and creation of legal documentation
•Providing clients with legal advice and information
•Carrying out interviews with clients/witnesses
•Undertaking general administrative tasks
Paralegals do not require any specific qualifications. However, Paralegal roles are extremely popular, meaning candidates with legal degrees, qualifications etc. are much more likely to be successful.
The standard working hours for a Paralegal are usually between 37-40 hours. This may increase depending on the importance of a case or workload. Paralegals may also be required to leave the office and attend court or meetings.
Paralegals can now be seen as a gateway into becoming a solicitor. If you have worked as a Paralegal, you may be able to apply to have the time you spent in the job contribute towards your Solicitor training.
The experience that a Paralegal can acquire can be crucial in regards to their professional progression. Many law firms see Paralegals as a perfect example of an individual who has a vast understanding of the legal industry and has achieved this by learning ‘on the job’.
