Legal and Law Enforcement Jobs - Listings

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that new job openings within the field of criminal justice will increase by 15% over the next decade. No matter what career you choose to pursue in criminal justice, you'll have to pass a criminal history check. Most states have laws against hiring professionals who have been convicted of various felonies. A credit check is part of most thorough background reviews, and may include a summary of your employment history, a neighborhood survey, and a home visit. Criminal justice careers can range from law enforcement, to working in a legal setting such as a courtroom or law office. The median national salary for police officers is $62,000. Further, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are approximately 112,200 detectives and criminal investigators employed in the United States, with a median annual income around $78,000. However, salary depends greatly on location and which agency you work for, as well as the number of years of service.

Paralegal Jobs

Paralegals work in law firms, corporations, the government, and operate under the supervision of a lawyer. Paralegals assist attorneys by reducing case loads, investigating the facts of cases, interviewing clients and witnesses, and performing legal research. A paralegal may draft pleadings, deposition notices, subpoenas, briefs, and other legal documents. Further, job duties may include filing documents with the court, and assisting at hearings, administrative proceedings, and court trials. Paralegals cannot give legal advice, represent a client in court, establish legal fees, or sign any legal documents. Paralegals generally possess at a minimum, a 2-year associates degree, a bachelor’s degree, or a paralegal certificate. Paralegals with a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies, or an associates degree combined with a paralegal certificate, generally have the best career prospects.

Paralegals must develop an understanding of legal terminology, and the rules of legal procedure. They must have excellent organizational skills in order to manage case files and multiple exhibits. Communication skills are paramount because paralegals must interact with clients, experts, court personnel and attorneys. Strong research and writing skills are necessary in drafting pleadings, research memos, and other documents. According to the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, the average paralegal salary is $50,496 per year. However, some experienced paralegals with special skills may earn in excess of $110,000 annually. Ranked as one of the 20 best jobs in America by CNN, job opportunities in the paralegal field are plentiful, due to rising legal fees, and the fact that more clients are demanding the use of paralegals.
