"Junior Paralegal"

Former Employee Junior Paralegal in Chicago,IL City, - Reviewed on February 14, 2020

Before having attorneys assign complex projects to paralegals, such as those where legal research is required, consider having the paralegal complete several mock assignments, to ensure the knowledge to perform the task satisfactorily is there. Cite-checking with the bluebook can be assignned more freely, but legal research requires a skill that needs to be built over time.

Pros : Opportunity to work of various types of cases, learn many aspects of paralegal work through training and assignments, and be able to discuss backgroud of cases with associates and partners.
Cons : If work becomes scarce (happened to me when many attorneys left the firm several years ago), you might be assigned a document review or inventory/document storage project and start wondering about the stability of your position. If this happens, you will feel it necessary to directly ask attorneys or more senior paralegals about projects you can do or help with, in order to show you're contributing to the firm.
