Paralegal certification provides additional professional advantages. There are many professions that, while not titled "paralegal," are able to make use of a paralegal’s skills. Some of these professions include: real estate, landlords/property managers, patent clerks, investigative positions, social services, and office managers. Many government and corporate positions can also be enhanced by a paralegal education.

NOTE: We do not recommend that paralegals offer their services directly to the public. To do so risks engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.
