Do you ever wonder about the future of the paralegal field? I know there are some out there who think paralegals are unnecessary and/or will soon be outmoded – but numbers do not lie! Here is a great infograph from Online-paralegal-programs.com with the numbers on the future of the profession.
I am hopeful that the trend continues and jobs continue to grow in this profession. Personally, I love being a paralegal and am always glad to hear when others decide to enter the profession or expound upon their careers. I also agree with the pros and cons listed in the graph. This is not necessarily the profession to enter if you are looking for notoriety – we do not all get a movie of our lives like Erin Brockovich. However, it is very rewarding!
This is the future of paralegals and the future is bright!
