Are you ready for the rigors of law school or life as a lawyer? This profession entails a lot of sacrifice to become one of the best. Some firms take only the cream of the crop or those with years of experience in the industry.
If you plan to get a high paying job at a firm or get recognition for your work, becoming a paralegal and getting certification may be your best stepping stone.
A career as a paralegal is an ideal option for prospective lawyers who want to get a glimpse of the industry and get enough experience to put on their resumes when they apply for a position at a law firm. Paralegals do the paperwork, write legal documents and other legal-related work similar to what a solicitor does. They also perform clerical tasks, and research and provide legal information to a client. The pay is lower, but it is a rewarding experience for prospective lawyers who want to know how the industry works and gain connections.
As a paralegal, you get first-hand experience working for a law firm in the industry that interests you. The diversity of career choices include insurance, health and corporate just to name a few.
Working in the industry tests your ability and gives you the opportunity to really know, if you want to pursue a career in law. Save money, time and effort by practicing what a lawyer does as a paralegal rather than spend on law school, and later decide that it is not for you.
