Job Outlook

For those trained as legal professionals, many rewarding opportunities exist for employment as law clerks, paralegals, legal assistants, litigation specialists, court clerks and other professions.

All levels of local, state and federal government, banks, insurance companies, title companies, mortgage companies, law libraries, courts, legal service/legal aid offices, legal clinics, and law departments of special interest groups or associations readily employ non-attorney legal professionals, typically working under the supervision of attorneys.

Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
