In today's world, there are numerous programs for paralegal training. These programs range from short-term certificate programs to four-year undergraduate degree programs. All of these programs can be useful for gaining entry into the paralegal profession.
I came to the paralegal profession through a non-traditional route. I was an English major who applied for a paralegal job posting that listed writing skills as an essential skill for applicants. In my case, my employer was looking for someone to review legislation and write plain language summaries for various business units within the company.
What I have discovered is that a solid liberal arts background can serve as the perfect foundation for people interested in pursing a career as a paralegal. The best skills you can offer include the following:
* outstanding writing skills
* solid research skills
* attention to detail
Good luck in pursuing your paralegal career.
