Paralegal Careers

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that employment for paralegals is set to increase by 28% to 2018 (, which is faster than average. Employment for paralegal professionals is expected to be driven by law firms choosing to employ more paralegals, who can often do the work of lawyers for less cost.

Approximately 70% of all paralegals work in private law firms. The rest work mainly as in-house legal staff for businesses, corporations or for government agencies. Paralegals may also choose to work on a self-employed basis, operating as freelance employees. Many paralegals will find themselves starting as entry-level paralegals and then working their way up the ranks.
