According to the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, a paralegal is a professional who performs much of the legal work that requires knowledge of legal concepts and which is usually assigned by an attorney. In other words, most of the work which paralegals do is similar to that of lawyers, with some limitations: they are not allowed to conduct trials or accept fees.
 
The Important Role of Different Paralegals in the Legal Field

Paralegals form an important part of the legal industry and are responsible for handling a plethora of tasks and for providing support for the lawyers they work for. Under directions issued by an attorney, most paralegals look after minor legal issues. They help lawyers in different tasks like research of laws, judicial decisions, articles, treaties, and other legal documents that are pivotal to the current legal cases. They may even have to coordinate in the filing of financial records and case documents.

Most paralegals work in law firms, legal departments within corporations, and government offices.
