Paralegals, also called legal assistants, work in law offices in a variety of positions related to the legal profession. Activities that paralegals may be involved with include: legal research, client contact, factual investigation and drafting of documents. While final responsibility for their activities rests with the supervising lawyer, paralegals usually have important responsibilities that require a strong background of specialized instruction such as that offered by Minnesota State University Moorhead.
