There are a lot of statistics
available showing a variety of different stats and
facts, but one that may be a real inspiration for those
trying to decide on the Paralegal career vs becoming an
attorney is striking. Over the last 20 years tuition for
law schools has grown at a rate 4.5 times faster than

The main problem with so many
applicants putting together their Resume is that they
leave out complexities, colorful examples of practical
situations and diversity in applicable useful tools.
A Resume or Theatrical Synopsis Effect
Don’t give them just the obvious. Sell yourself
through a little entertainment.
Take this concept
and use it wisely. Internet websites, not unlike TV and
Print ads, have about 4-8 seconds to grab someone's
attention before they're onto another site, another
station or another media, etc. Use that same theory in
Make your Opening interesting and
strong. It can be a way of stating your skill sets right
up front. List a few short situations you've been
involved in that give them a favorable transition
'before' you list your experience.
think of possibly drafting or designing your resume in a
custom biographical format with some added relevant
theatrics. Tell your story. Don't be afraid to highlight
tough tasks and interesting challenges you dealt with
and how you resolved them. Problem solving can be a very
good asset, especially if it was done in an
interestingly or unique manner.
PL's have Options

other options and benefits in becoming a PL *
Freelance Paralegal independent contractors to Law Firms

Document preparation assistants (LDA) * Working for
small and medium sized businesses as a legal secretary
