Paralegals are professionals trained to help lawyers in a variety of legal capacities. Among other tasks, paralegals draft legal documents, conduct research, manage cases, and work with clients.
In California, paralegals need a certificate from a program approved by the American Bar Association (ABA) and either one year of training under the supervision of a licensed attorney if you have a bachelor’s degree or three years of supervised experience if you only have a high school diploma.
Paralegals have less training than lawyers. While they do a lot of work to help lawyers prepare for cases, paralegals cannot represent clients or go to trial.
Yes. While paralegals are not the same as lawyers, they are still considered legal professionals.
