If the idea of working in a law firm excites you, consider becoming a legal administrative assistant. As a legal administrative assistant, you would likely have many responsibilities, such as preparing common legal documents like wills, contracts and leases. Working under the direction of a licensed lawyer, you may help write legal briefs, schedule examinations and organize evidence necessary for court appearances. You would be able to take pride in being a valuable part of a professional legal team.
