Legal assistants: organising the legal office routine
Legal assistants have a real talent when it comes to organisation: They carry out administrative tasks and coordinate the processes in law firms or companies. They coordinate appointments, keep track of deadlines, create files or documents, are responsible for bookkeeping and are the first point of contact for clients or courts.
Which opportunities do legal assistants have on the labour market?
Due to the variety of tasks of legal assistants, they have numerous opportunities on the job market. Their fields of work include law firms, banks, insurance companies, dunning departments of department store chains, auditing companies or debt collection agencies. Further training increases their prospects of getting a well-paid job. With additional qualifications as a notary clerk, for example, they can expand their field of activity. Besides, they can qualify for positions as assistant tax consultants, office administrators or business administrators with focus on law by pursuing a degree course or by attending extra-occupational evening classes. Every further training brings along a wide range of new options for legal tasks within companies.
