This kind of paralegal works with fixed forms among the many moving parts of the world of real estate law. This world can encompass foreclosures, closings, quiet title actions, and the realm of title companies. (By the way, title companies are hiring more and more paralegals because of their excellent awareness of the basic issues involved. Pay is increasing in some areas of the country and paralegals are being promoted up into management at title companies.)
Most lawyers practice law on their own, either as practicing lawyers or in a law firm. For one to be a lawyer, he has to have a four year degree, must go through law school for three years, and has to excel in the written bar examination. Though these are the basic requirements for any prospective lawyer, the requirements may be different from state to state. Law schools are very competitive as far as admissions are concerned, so one has to be very articulate to be admitted. Every year there are many law school graduates that compete for the limited number of jobs in the legal industry.
