What does a paralegal do?
Paralegals help lawyers draft contracts and other legal documents, under their guidance. They also play an important role in conducting research that helps support court arguments and legal briefs. Paralegals don’t give legal advice or represent clients in a court of law, but some are notaries and can sign legal documents.
