Assignment 1 - Avoiding Unauthorized Practice of Law Determine three (3) most important characteristics of an effective paralegal. Justify your response.
Any legal job requires top quality of writing skills, so is with paralegals. Paralegals are supposed to draft correspondence, legal documents, memorandums, etc. when asked by attorneys and it’s important they don’t just do the rough work they should be able to give final copy to the attorney. Flexible: Resistance kills the opportunity of growth for a paralegal. If the paralegal is flexible with the kind of suits example: settlements, corporate laws, divorce suits, etc. and is ready to work for any attorney, it will be helpful for the career growth. Attorneys also look for paralegal at the last moment to cover up the pending work, which again makes them look for flexible paralegal that is ready to work in short duration.
