Paralegal

Behind every good attorney is a good paralegal. Dedicated to helping attorneys prepare cases, organize files, draft contracts and maintain ongoing relationships with clients, paralegals find work in law offices, federal government offices, private companies and corporations and nonprofit organizations.

Newbies can break into the field with a two-year associate degree program (or a shorter certificate program for career changers who already hold a bachelor's degree) and can expect a median salary of $46,210, according to the BLS, with the top 10 percent of paralegals reeling in $73,450 per year.
