Bilingual Legal Secretary Job Description

A bilingual legal secretary is someone who works in a secretarial or administrative capacity for an attorney or law office. What distinguishes a bilingual legal secretary is that he or she speaks more than one language such as Spanish, French or Korean in addition to English, and is thus is able to bring additional communication skills to the office environment. Bilingual legal secretaries often serve as translators within the law office, but they also typically perform traditional secretarial tasks such as typing, dictation, answering the phones, and keeping track of calendars and schedules. A bilingual legal secretary plays a very important role in legal settings and his or her particular job description is often tailored to the particular attorney and legal practice for which he or she works.
