Appellate Paralegal Job Description

An appellate paralegal is a paralegal who works in the area of appellate law. Appellate paralegals work for appellate lawyers and in appellate law firms and assist attorneys with their work. Appellate law is the body of law that involves appealing judicial rulings and jury verdicts to higher courts. Appellate law includes appeals of both civil law and criminal law, and appeals within the state court system and the federal court system. Appellate paralegals assist with reviewing trial records (reviewing transcripts from what people said in court), researching laws and regulations, and making filings in state and federal appellate courts. Because appellate paralegals are not attorneys and have not been admitted to the bars of any state, appellate paralegals must always work under the direction of a practicing attorney.
