Paralegal Courses to Support Lawyers in Michigan

Paralegals, legal assistants and legal secretaries play an essential role in the justice system, supporting the work of lawyers. They help lawyers prepare for hearings, trials, and corporate meetings by reviewing and organizing documents, preparing written reports and legal arguments, and conducting research.
