Detroit has received much notoriety throughout 2013 for filing bankruptcy. The city has multiple depressed areas despite several different revitalization efforts. Regardless of the city's own financial woes, there are many legal jobs available for qualified individuals.
It's easy to assume that the depressed economy has contributed to the criminal activity that demands more personnel to both defend and prosecute these illegal dealings. An attorney may decide to work on the defense side, interviewing witnesses and following up on leads that would prove their client's innocence; or at least absolve their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Another option is to work with the district attorney's office, preparing cases to prove the guilt of the aforementioned accused parties. A DA or assistant DA examine the evidence provided to by law enforcement agencies to determine if there is enough evidence to successfully prosecute. If it is deemed that there is enough evidence, they will then file charges against that person. Before the trial, prosecutors will interview witnesses, gather statements, and perform any other duties necessary to prepare for trial.
If you are more disposed to work in a legal office, you may find your new employment home as a legal assistant. A legal administrative assistant job is similar to a paralegal, although less formal education and more administrative duties are generally involved. This may include filing reports for the attorney, maintaining contact with different subjects involved with a particular case and communicating case progression. This is typically an office position and involves many clerical duties. For example, there will likely be many duties typing documents and correspondence, so a minimal typing speed is often required.
Mediators provide a valuable service to the legal system. Mediators are often former lawyers or judges, but may be people who enjoy working in law with exceptional communication skills. With court caseloads and associated legal costs on the rise, a mediator is often utilized to help maintain communication between a plaintiff and a defendant. A mediator often has to help settle disputes and maintain communication between the two parties, so objectivity and communication skills are critical in order to be successful in this position.
