The Legal Assistant's Complete Desk Reference
The paralegal profession continues to experience growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook, an 18% growth in the profession is projected between 2010 and 2020. Paralegals and legal assistants are an integral part of the legal system, assisting attorneys with a variety of substantive tasks. A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work.

The typical duties of a paralegal or legal assistant are incredibly wide-ranging and varied. You are expected to perform all the legal work that does not require a lawyer sometimes, this means performing this legal work for several lawyers and a fair amount of the office tasks. There are also model rules and ethical codes to be followed.

Paralegals and legal assistants need a thorough guide to all the rules and regulations dictating their job performance, as well as a repository of the many forms they see every day.
