Legal Secretary job duties:

Legal secretaries have a huge variety of duties to perform. Mainly their job is to assist the attorney they work for. They will perform research and will often organize meetings, appointments and dates for attorneys.

A legal secretary can be called by different names such as a paralegal or legal assistant.
Legal secretaries can work in many different settings and offices. Some of those might include large corporations, law offices, governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations.

So far as I know there is no formal education needed to attain the position of a legal secretary. Most people will have had plenty of experience doing secretarial work. If you do have some experience in law office work, or law enforcement classes in college, it could help you get in the door a lot quicker.

Legal secretaries take on the duties of organizing many office affairs, including organizing dates and organizing motions for court hearings, working with other attorneys or with the court. Filing, faxing and answering the phone, are also the most basic duties that are always done on a daily basis.

They may do legal research and help an attorney interact with clients.
In summary, their duties cover just about anything and everything the attorney wants completed by an assistant. Being very helpful is recommended.

Legal secretaries are not allowed to give legal advice,--only an attorney.
