If you've ever watched law-based dramas on television, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was all courtrooms and judges wearing silly wigs, but you'd be wrong.

If you want a career in law but don't fancy taking the centre stage in the courtroom, why not look behind closed doors, and consider a career as a Legal Secretary?

So, what will you actually be doing?

Every law firm, financial company or barrister’s chambers needs a good legal secretary to ensure the office runs smoothly. This important supporting role is a demanding and responsible one, but the financial benefits can be great, and you could find yourself involved in a variety of challenging and interesting tasks.

Your main priority as a legal secretary is to provide secretarial and administrative support to lawyers and legal executives. Your daily tasks will include:

  • Keeping records up to date
  • Typing up legal documents
  • Answering the phone
  • Organising diaries
  • Preparing court forms
  • Attending court
  • Performing legal research
  • Making appointments with clients

The finer details...

This is a full-time office position. While most of your time will be based in the office, you may be required to attend court hearings or a police station occasionally.
