Government Agencies Also Hire Paralegals

Wednesday, April 25, 2012


Though law offices are the typical workplace environment for Alberta paralegals, other organizations also need assistance from these types of legal professionals, such as real estate firms, financial institutions and government agencies. These organizations often recruit paralegals and other legal administrative professionals to help them organize client cases and keep records of legal documents.

Across the country, government offices have added more paralegals in their workplace. While the job title may not necessarily be paralegal, certain positions require the same types of skills that paralegals possess, including civil rights specialists and personnel management specialists.

Preparing legal documents, maintaining records and conducting research to assist other professionals are all common daily tasks of a paralegal working in a government agency. In students' practicum, they can choose the type of office environment that they wish to work in the future and gain real world experience before graduating. For five weeks, they will act as regular employees, interacting with seasoned legal professionals and building a stronger network of connections.
