Now thinking of being a paralegal
While researching for jobs, and thinking of going to law school in a few years, I had a thought that becoming a paralegal might be a good idea. It can help train me for law school, and if I decide against going, I'll still be certified to work as a paralegal. I read of the opportunities and the professional outlook for paralegals, and it's pretty stellar. It's really slated to grow over the next decade, as a lot of firms are looking to save money and delegate more work originally allocated to lawyers, to paralegals instead. And it looks to only cost a few thousand dollars for a course, so it might not be a bad investment.
