Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question.
A paralegal can work for other entities or businesses depending on the situation. However, a paralegal cannot act as an attorney or perform any legal work which is not overseen by an attorney.
Can your question more?
Thank you for your response.
Would you please name some entities or businesses? Thank you.
A paralegal can use his/her skills to perform work for corporations (insurance companies, banks, oil companies, private equity companies, etc).
Being a paralegal provides a person with skills that are applicable in administration, human resources, compliance, etc.
Outside of a law firm or corporate legal department the job title will not be "paralegal". However, the fact that one is a paralegal will help one get jobs like those mentioned above.
1) The paralegal who works for a corporation which must have an attorney or legal department?
2) Or the paralegal who works for a corporation which have an outside attorney who will review the paralegal's work? Thank you.
