 Paralegal Jobs
The paralegal is a paraprofessional who has the experience and the education required to assist the lawyers in the legal work.

The definition of paralegal can differ from one country to another. However, the paralegal people cannot be authorized to offer the legal services. Sometime they may be required to be licensed and regulated in the same way as the lawyers. The paralegal can work alone or can work in the office. The unlicensed paralegal has to work under the lawyer and in the legal processes. The paralegals may handle the paperwork during the investigation, bankruptcies and divorce actions.

The paralegal started like the assistant to the lawyers when the lawyers were the only one to offer the legal services. In the jurisdictions where the paralegal staffs are allowed to work, they have to work under the accreditation and recognition of the lawyer.

The difference that exist between the paralegals and lawyers is that the lawyer may set the fees, may appear in the counsel or in the court and they can sign the pleadings within the representative capacity. The paralegal are not allowed to do such activities and they can do this in violation of the local statues. The paralegal training or expertise may be specific while the lawyer may do a holistic and formal training.

The paralegal is also different from the legal secretary. The legal secretary is the secretary but who has the basic understanding of the legal words and the formatting of the court documents.

The paralegal jobs are important and are meant to assist with corporate transaction together with filling the documents that are necessary to present to the local regulations, state and federal regulation for the conduct of everyday business.

The paralegal person has to work with the lawyer in order to represent the corporations regardless if they are for profit or non- for-profit as well as the partnership for the companies. He can assist the lawyers for the mergers, withdrawals and amendments for the limited liability and partnership. He can also assist the lawyer for the completion of the stock certificates.

The paralegal can work directly with the clients and the attorneys which involves closing the various corporate transactions that include the acquisitions for the mergers and initial public offerings. He has to prepare the audit letters as well as their distribution to the clients and auditors. He can gather the billing information and litigation used to prepare the draft of the responses for the auditors for the request for such information.
