Paralegal

Summary: We have done the hard part and compiled everything you need to contact every paralegal school in North America.

Paralegals are a valuable asset for law firms. Although they cannot offer legal services directly to clients and must work under a lawyer, they are still very knowledgeable about the legal system. Paralegals are sometimes called legal assistants. A paralegal is like a Physicians Assistant. A PA must work under a doctor’s license just like a paralegal must work under the expertise of a lawyer.

Ontario, Canada is the only place that allows paralegals to work on their own. There are 20 listings in Ontario for you to look into if you are interested in this field of legal work and live in the area.

Some of the tasks that paralegals are expected to perform include analyzing and summarizing depositions, preparing and answering interrogatories, drafting procedural motions and other routine briefs, performing legal research and analysis, drafting research memos, and performing case and project management.
