There are many people that go to law school but do not want to pursue a career as an attorney. A law degree will open up many other opportunities in a countless number of professions. Law school emphasizes skills that many jobs look for such as writing, reading, problem solving, attention to detail, research, and organization. Thus, if you attend law school it is safe to say you are well prepared for almost any job that does not require a specialization such as a surgeon or psychologist. In order to become a paralegal you only need to take a two-year paralegal course. No law school is required. A paralegal is not an attorney, they are simply a person who works with/under the practicing attorney and does many of the same tasks but cannot offer legal advice.
