Programs - Law and Paralegal

Being a lawyer and a paralegal sometimes are called one in the same. But what exactly is the difference? A paralegal reviews legal questions, and writes legal documents, just like a lawyer does. The largest difference is that a paralegal doesn’t attend three years of law schools following undergraduate studies. This allows paralegals to practice law in a meaningful way, without the hectic hours lawyers typically face. The result is typically lower pay than lawyers receive, but without all the added stress and time.
