Everything! Haha...I took a paralegal course because I thought all they did was research and I like stuff like that. Well...found out by the end of the course, they do a lot more than that. Sorry this isn't more "technical". but it's been a long time since I took that course, so I can't give you a list of what they do, but just wanted to add this to alert anyone interested in this career that there's more to it than you might think. I hate to say this, but you're kind of a glorified secretary too...the only way I can think to put it.
