Paralegal
Paralegal is a term that is used in most jurisdictions to describe a non-lawyer who assists lawyers in their legal work. This is true in the United States and many other countries. However, in Ontario, Canada, paralegals are licensed by the Law Society of Upper Canada, giving paralegals an independent status in this jurisdiction.
 
 
Legal assistant
Legal assistants (also known as paralegals) are a distinguishable group of persons who assist attorneys in the delivery of legal services. Through formal education, training, and experience, legal assistants have knowledge and expertise regarding the legal system and substantive and procedural law which qualify them to do work of a legal nature under the supervision of an attorney.
 
Legal Secretary certificate
In the United States, there is no such thing as a licensed paralegal; rather, paralegals can be "registered," "certificated," or certified. While certification or registration is voluntary in most states, it prepares a paralegal to enter the profession; in many places it may increase the likelihood of a paralegal's hire or promotion, and serves to identify a person as capable of work that is on par with certain standards.
 
Legal Secretary programs
In the United States, paralegals have taken many different paths to their careers. These paths comprise an array of varying levels of education, different certifications, and on-the-job-training. They work in government, for law firms, for corporations, for real estate firms, and for nonprofit organizations. Where they work and what they do often depends on what mixture of experience, skills, education, and certification they possess.
 
Legal Secretary courses
Paralegal courses teach students a lot of things including how to communicate with a legal professional effectively and efficiently. Students also develop an insight about how to handle legal research with law databases and also how to maintain the confidentiality of the client.
 
Paralegal legal secretary
In the practice of law in the United States, a legal secretary is person who works in the legal profession, typically assisting lawyers. Legal secretaries help by preparing and filing legal documents, such as appeals or motions. It is not unusual for a larger firm to place managerial duties on a particular legal secretary. Much like a paralegal, a legal secretary is responsible for locating relevant information for cases. This type of person would be called a "paralegal" in the United Kingdom.
 
Legal assistant training
Legal assistant training provides the candidate with skills needed to work under the supervision of a lawyer or attorney. Legal assistants are often involved with conducting research, drafting legal documents, and summarizing depositions.
 
Contract Legal Secretary 
Contract paralegal is one that is self-employed and available to take on short term, long term, per diem or per case projects with no commitments beyond any commissioned assignment.
