    Preparing legal documents, answering phones, investigating and research, gathering information for court appearances and trials, running errands, taking notes. Basically a paralegal assists an attorney with his job thus making his job easier. It is a fairly high paying, rewarding position that should keep you busy with interesting and challenging work

    It varies from firm to firm and will depend on what type of law you are doing.  In general, drafting documents and correspondence & filing them, drafting letters, client communication, summarizing all sort of things, including entire files, marking what's important, documents to be used at trial, redacting, research, drafting matrixes, charting, handling discovery, arranging conferences, including opposing attorneys and judges, telephone conferences, etc.
