Careers and Employment

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the employment for paralegals to grow much faster than average for all occupations through the year 2014. Employers are attempting to reduce costs and increase the availability and efficiency of legal services by hiring paralegals to perform tasks formerly performed by lawyers.

For more information on the paralegal field on the national level, visit this U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics  
web site.

The College and Career Information Center in the College of DuPage Library has a number of excellent career guides for law and paralegal careers. The following file contains a list of these guides as well as other useful information:
