Legal administrators address the same issues as managers in other industries, but should have training or experience in professional legal careers. As in other legal professions, the scope of responsibilities among legal administrators may differ. In this career, you will see that the highest degree of experience is required, but a college degree is not necessary. Most medium- to large-sized firms have at least one legal administrator, if not several, each with different areas of responsibility. Smaller firms tend to have legal administrators that take on many additional responsibilities of other careers in the law profession.
 
Why Choose the Role of a Legal Administrator

The Right Stuff

Legal administrators should be able to handle all administrative aspects of a law office, and exhibit professionalism, decorum, and leadership even in the midst of a crisis. They should follow the instructions of the law firm partners, the firm owner, or board of directors, and implement their requests precisely, even if they disagree with the directives given. Legal administrators should be good listeners who enjoy people with a variety of personalities and are able to focus on people's attributes. A legal administrator should be a multitask person with a positive attitude and good interpersonal skills.
