New York City Legal Jobs
If you live in NYC and are looking for a new job, consider searching through New York City legal jobs. With more than 8 million people living in the city, the largest city in the nation has plenty of legal careers available. You may want to consider a job through the court system, such as a court reporter or docket manager, or you may be more comfortable working in a traditional law firm as a paralegal or legal secretary.

A court reporter is a person who attends legal proceedings and creates transcriptions of these events word for word. Court reporters generally work for a government entity such as a legislator or court. While the nature of this work requires a court reporter to be onsite, some have the opportunity to work remotely in a home office. To qualify as a court reporter, you will likely need to complete a certificate course offered by a community or traditional college.

A litigation docket manager maintains the dockets for a legal body. A litigation docket is a list of cases associated with a particular court. A docket manager updates calendars associated with the docket and maintains associated docket files and records. An undergraduate degree is usually required for this position although work experience may be substituted for education requirements.

Exceptional communication skills are necessary to be successful in a contract paralegal job. Communication is necessary not only to discuss and interpret the contracts, but also in following up with people to make sure the contract is adhered to and all components completed. This can include working in groups or other workshops or representing a client when working with other clients or vendors to determine the scope of a project.

If you thrive in an office setting, you may want to look into becoming a legal secretary. Legal secretaries provide clerical and/or administrative functions to help attorneys by drafting correspondence and legal documents. These documents may include summonses, motions, complaints, responses or subpoenas. Often these duties are performed under the guidance of a lawyer or a paralegal. A successful legal secretary will possess excellent communication skills, and the ability to prioritize things and maintain confidentiality.

Regardless of your preference, education level and career goals, a quick search through New York City legal jobs might just provide the new position you were hoping to find.

It is because of the city's unique qualities that the state of New York has certain strict rules that a lawyer has to comply with before being admitted to practice law in the city. One of these requirements is taking the state bar examination, which is considered by some to be the most difficult bar exam in the nation.
