 How did you get in that job? What's it like? Did you have to go to school for it? Lol, sorry I know you didn't say ask questions about your profession but I've always been interested in that area.  But...I am a Cardiology receptionist.



I have an Associate's degree in Paralegal studies from an ABA (American Bar Association) approved program, not because I need it but because the field is becoming very competitive and I always want to remain a great candidate. If you live near or want to work in a big city, you will need your Bachelors degree (which I have less than a year to complete). A lot of schools are beginning to offer Masters degrees in Paralegal studies, but for now that isn't necessary though in ten years it may be. Everything Paralegals do is under the supervision of an Attorney and they are responsible for our work , paralegals do everything from managing attorney calendars to drafting legal documents to meeting and communicating with clients. Paralegals' work varies from the type of law they choose, however in school there is no focus oyn a specific type of law. It is important to know that unless you are lucky enough, to learn corporate or patent law, don't expect to make over 40k until you have 7, 8 years of experience but that will vary by location.

Thank you. Lol. The best part is dressing the part though its not cheap. I'm unsure about staying in the field, as a Paralegal at least the work is very exciting but most Attorneys are ego driven and at times I wish I didn't have to deal with Attorneys all day but as a Paralegal that's not an option.

 I bet. Right now, I am going through a custody dispute with my boyfriend for his daughter and I am pretty sick of lawyers lol. Although ours is a nice guy but still. I guess it's kind of similar to working for doctors and I've worked for them the last seven years. Some are nice, some and pains. Lol.
