I am researching the market to determine whether law firms and corporate legal departments have a need for supplemental paralegal training. My concept is to offer customized paralegal training based on the requirements and needs of the managing attorneys. Thank you for your consideration. VCirilli
Thank you for your inquiry.
I am not sure about law firms need to have customized training but I should clarify that my experience has been working in large law firms who usually have their senior paralegals train their entry level paralegals.
However, I have also worked in –house and I feel that they would benefit from your customized training. The in-house positions that I have been in, I had to pretty much trained myself … of course my years of working in the law firms has help me. Depending on the in-house, the legal department is usually smaller with a General Counsel who doesn’t have the time to train its staff, therefore, they usually hire experienced paralegals that have worked in law firms or have had an in-house position in the past.
As a virtual paralegal, I found that solo practitioners and small law firms need training on how to hire and work with virtual paralegals in general.
