Job Description for Senior Paralegal

A senior paralegal position normally exists either within larger legal practices or the legal department of large corporations. It is distinguished from entry-level paralegal work by the amount of expertise within the field necessary to hold the position, as well as a proven ability to manage a wide variety of tasks beyond those present at the entry level. Senior paralegals are often trusted with highly sensitive documentation, research and reporting, and are expected to maintain high levels of confidentiality as a result. In larger firms, senior paralegals fill a supervisory position, and may have a staff of legal assistants working under them. The job of hiring these assistants, or at minimum, giving their initial interviews and screenings may fall to the senior paralegals.
