Paralegal (Legal Assistant) Job Description


The role of a Paralegal is to assist the legal team in the fulfillment of their duties in respect of legal cases and preparing for trials and hearings. You will need a unique and diverse set of skills to perform the duties to the high standards expected. A large part of the Paralegal role includes conducting effective research for legal cases, and also gathering and preparing relevant documents that will be used during the handling of the case.

Main PARALEGAL duties and responsibilities:

  • Gathering and preparing all relevant documents, legal correspondence and information to be used by lawyers and attorneys;
  • Meeting with claw firm clients, layers and other stakeholders who have a vested interest in the case;
  • Maintaining accurate records of each case in both paper and electronic format in line with the law firm’s data handling regulations;
  • Filing relevant and accurate pleadings with the court clerk;
  • Assisting in the preparation for trial;
  • Conducting appropriate legal research and fact-gathering under the direction of the layer/attorney;
  • Directing and facilitating the legal team activity to ensure the objectives of each case are met on time;
  • Calling on witnesses to testify during trials you are responsible for;
  • Conducting all other relevant legal and administrative duties in line with the requirements set by the law firm you are employed by.

To become a competent Paralegal, you will need to demonstrate a number of key skills and attributes, including being able to work hard under pressure, carrying out all duties accurately and professionally, upholding the principles of the law firm, being an excellent and robust communicator, providing excellent client services and also keeping and maintain accurate records at all times.

4 TIPS FOR PASSING YOUR PARALEGAL (LEGAL ASSISTANT) INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – In preparation for your Paralegal interview, we recommend you study the organization you are applying to join. You will get asked an interview question that assesses why you have chosen their law firm to become a Paralegal over their competitors. It is important you provide a unique answer to the question that explains what you intend to achieve whilst you are working for them.

TIP #2 – A Paralegal requires a unique set of skills and qualities to be able to perform their duties accurately and in line with regulations. On that basis, you will be asked a series of behavioral-type questions that analyze prior situations you have been in whilst at work. These include an ability to work hard under pressure, an ability to meet tight deadlines, an ability to demonstrate attention to detail, and also a willingness to be flexible in the role. Make sure you provide specific, evidence-based answers to these questions during your Paralegal interview.

TIP #3 – The most effective way to answer situational/behavioural-type interview questions (as described in TIP #2 above), is to use the STAR technique. We strongly recommend you structure your answers using the format of SITUATION, TASK, ACTION and RESULT. If you follow this method, you are far likely to gain higher scores during your Paralegal interview.

TIP #4 – Being a supportive member of the legal team is perhaps one of the most important elements of being a Paralegal. The most effective Paralegals are the ones who can be relied upon to complete tasks accurately, on time and also unsupervised. During your Paralegal interview, make sure you provide evidence of previous situations you have been in where you complete challenging tasks effectively. This will go a long way to convincing the panel you are the right person for the job.
