Paralegals generally possess at a minimum, a 2-year associates degree, a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies, or a paralegal certificate.

It isn't necessary to be enrolled in a degree program in order to sign up for online courses. You can audit classes at your own pace without the pressure of a classroom. If you remain true to your career interests, your overall earnings will increase as you gain experience. In fact, many self-made entrepreneurs started working in a technical field that they were good at.

Before launching a business start-up, research your target industry and competitors, and if you need outside funding, give special attention to financial projections. Make use of templates online to assist you in writing an original business plan.

Legal Jobs

Employment of lawyers and paralegals is projected to grow up to 10% percent over the coming decade, although competition for legal positions is intense because more students graduate from law school each year than there are jobs available. The median annual wage for lawyers was $115,820 in May 2015. Newly hired attorneys usually start as associates and work with more experienced lawyers. After several years, some lawyers may be admitted to partnership of their firm, which means they become partial owners of the firm.
