Environmental Paralegal Job Description

An environmental paralegal is a paralegal who works in the area of environmental law. Some environmental paralegals work for private law firms that handle land use law. These firms assist clients like real estate developers and other companies in doing their business while still complying with federal and state environmental laws relating to things like water and air quality, pollution, and impact on the environment. Other environmental paralegals work for non-profit organizations or law firms that seek to use the law to protect the environment and wildlife. Because environmental paralegals are not attorneys and have not been admitted to the bars of any state, environmental paralegals must always work under the direction of a practicing attorney.
