I’ve always dreamed of being a paralegal, always dreaming of a career with a salary that pays for a lifestyle that I could really live on. I didn’t know that I had a dream until I had to prove it to myself. Now it’s here, and it’s happening, so I guess I should probably go back and tell my parents. It’s really the first time I ever had to pay for my own entertainment.
The truth is that you don’t even have to pay for your own entertainment. In fact, according to a recent study by the Harvard School of Public Health, the average salary for a lawyer in this country is $86,400. For paralegals, it’s a bit less than that. I guess the big joke is that most paralegals just make more money in their careers than lawyers.
And that’s not a joke. That’s a fact. And while I don’t think the salary argument is entirely true, the fact of the matter is that there are a lot more paralegals than lawyers in this country.
The fact is, however, that the average salary for a lawyer is significantly higher than the average salary for a paralegal. And in fact, the Harvard study found that paralegals typically make about $3,000 more than lawyers. To make that money, many paralegals work in a variety of different fields, including finance, insurance, accounting, and legal research.
If the average paralegal made less than $65,000 a year, that would mean that most of them were making between $8,000 and $13,000 a year. In other words, the average paralegal made less than the average lawyer. That’s not to say that everybody who makes less than the average lawyer is a paralegal.
Paralegals who make more than the average lawyer generally make more money than paralegals who make less than the average lawyer. But you can’t even compare apples to apples if you only look at paralegals who make less than the average paralegal. Most of those paralegals are actually lawyers.
Its just that the average paralegal makes about $35,000 a year. Which is not much more than the average lawyer. The average lawyer makes $90,000 a year in the state of Illinois.
So, its not clear if the paralegal salary is actually a good thing. The idea of a paralegal job is to take on the more clerical work that a lawyer does. But there are so many lawyers in the state of Illinois that there is a lot of legal work that needs to be done on paralegal level. So, in order to make the job as a paralegal as lucrative as one of the lawyers, you need to spend more time on it.
In recent years, the paralegal job has been in vogue by the state of Illinois. The reason is that it is a relatively easy job to get into and one that does not require a lot of skills. Also, it is a job that requires little to no computer science and that does not require you to have a strong legal background. Thus, paralegals are relatively high-status jobs in the state of Illinois, and the pay is very good.
Illinois is in the top 10 for the amount of paralegals it can hire, and it is probably the most heavily populated state in the nation. The most common type of paralegal is an associate or junior associate at a law firm, and as of 2009, there were 9.9 million associates and 1.4 million junior associates in Illinois.
