Handling a career and a family at the same time can be difficult, especially if one is committed to a time-intensive profession such as the legal profession. So how does one with legal career and a family manage?
Paralegals are becoming a new career choice for many people because the education requirements do not capture a four year commitment of somebody's life. Paralegals or Legal Assistants can become certified within two years and be able to compete in a work environment that allows people from many different backgrounds an inside view on how the legal system works.
Many people who want to become paralegals have little or no idea what it is that paralegals actu- ally do. They know being a paralegal vaguely has something to do with attorneys and the law. Although the information the public has about lawyers has been glamorized to an extent by television shows such as Law and Order, The Practice, John Grisham novels, and the movies, at least people have learned something about the nature of the work that lawyers perform. Unfortunately, these shows rarely even mention paralegals, let alone give us any insight into what their role is in the delivery of legal services.
