I am a legal assistant in north Florida and would like to do legitimate work at home. I have 20 years experience in several areas of law, including criminal defense, insurance defense, creditor bankruptcy, civil litigation, commercial land use, contract law and probate law. Does anyone know of a legitimate work at home company for me? My typing skills are 93 wpm and I have experience in lots of various software. Also a Notary.
I am a legal assistant in a government agency. My job is to draft proposals and recommendations on litigation regarding antitrust! Your turn now.
I am considering going back to school to become a legal assistant. The reason for this is because there are tons of job openings for this position in the evenings.
I want an evening position so I can have more time for my family.
Please tell me if you work as a Legal Assistant and list its pros and cons.
Please be as specific, detailed and as honest as possible.
Thank you in advance and peace.
I've been a paralegal for 2 yrs and i like it but i feel like im getting bored with it. i want to go back to school for something "in the law field" but im just now sure yet. Can anyone help me find some careers in the legal field.
I want to get my associate's degree as a paralegal, but would it be better for me to do a 6 month legal assistant's program and then go back for my associate's? How easy is it to find a job as a legal assistant? What is there average salary?
I don't want a description or anything. I'm interested in a job in a law firm. I've seen my father keep his job for 26 years and he makes about 55,000 dollars a year or something. He's a word processor. What are the other lower positions?
Just to see all the different jobs people do and average salary.
I am an Admin Asst. 31,000
And what degree, or any other educational requirements, do you need for each job?
And what do they do?
If this helps, or changes some things, i live in Canada, and i won't be going to university for like 4 or 5 years.
I want to apply for a position as a legal assistant, and they want someone with "commercial/transactional experience." If they said contracts I would know what they're talking about, but I guess I need to ask all the attorneys or law students out there what this means. I have worked for an abstractor doing legal research in the oil and gas industry, and I am hoping that this is relevant experience. Thank you very much.
I want to study world history and get a degree in college what jobs can i get? besides a teacher or a museum person????
I graduated in 2003 with a BA in History. I didn't have any luck getting a job in the history field after college, and now I'm 2/3 done with my MA in Military History, which I will finish in August--although I won't get my diploma until December. I want to work at a museum or do historical research, but so many jobs require experience. I've got education but don't have any work experience in the history field, and I can't just volunteer because I need to pay the bills somehow.
I live in Alaska and want to move back to the Lower 48, but I need to get a job before I move, and it needs to be in late August or early September so I can move before winter comes.
Does anyone have some good advice for me? If you work in the history field, I'd especially like to hear from you.
Thanks for your answers so far--keep them coming! I didn't do internships before because I didn't know right away after college what I wanted to do. I've applied for a couple internships, but I don't know if I'll get them since so many internships actually want people to have experience. I'm not good in front of people, so I'm not really interested in teaching. I'm the type of person who likes to work behind the scenes.
Oh, in response to the other answer--about going into the military. I'm not interested in joining the military, although I definitely support our troops. I'm more interested in the history aspect. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
I'm considering earning an associates degree in paralegal. Are paralegals like attorney's assistants? Do the paralegals have long days like the attorneys? What would a typical day be like? Would they only be working with, or assisting, one attorney or several? Any comments or suggestions would be helpful?
I want to know what the highest position is for a Legal Secretary, if you don't mind I would like a list from the lowest to the highest. I have tried to search this myself and I had no luck. I appreciate your help. Thank you.
I was in a car accident with job transportation and i sued them. I been waiting for my settlement for 26mths.I still hhavent received anything yet.

How much does a commercial litigation lawyer make? in the washington dc area?
Again, this is a Paralegal Certificate and not an AA in Paralegal Studies. I live in FL and I know state laws vary, but generally speaking, with the Paralegal Certificate, would I be able to work as a Paralegal? I want to further my studies to be a criminal attorney down the road, but would like to start off as a Paralegal to build up experience, and reputation...Whats the difference between the certificate and the AA in Paralegal?
I hear that working for lawyers can be a tough job.
I was thinking it would be nice to work behind the scenes in a museum, but I would be poor. I'm a quiet person, so teaching doesn't appeal to me. And the government side of social studies bores me to tears. I just like history. Besides making a giant important discovery or writing amazing essays all the time, what job could I get?
I would also appreciate if you also explain in details what is the job and the earning and what are the options. .
