If you answered yes, then perhaps the parale- gal profession is the career choice for you. Although a paralegal cannot practice law, as a trained professional, they do much of the behind-the-scenes work that ultimately influences the final product. Some of the work involves interviewing clients, drafting legal documents, assisting in trials, conducting legal research and investigating the facts of a case. Being a paralegal can also lead to career advancement. Advancement opportunities may exist within a law firm or private business or as a steppingstone to law school. There are also career opportunities for paralegals outside the traditional legal field. Businesses recognize the value of employing paralegals. There currently is, and will con- tinue to be, an increase in the need for trained paralegals in such areas as finance, insurance, consulting and health care. At present, the U.S. Department of Labor proj- ects the need for paralegals will increase at a minimum yearly rate of 8% through the year 2024. The Bureau of Labor, U.S. Department of Labor, in its "Occupational Outlook Handbook," reports that as of May 2019, the median annual wage for paralegals and legal assistants was $51,740, an amount $11,930 higher than the median wage total for all occupations of $39,810. If you are ready for a rewarding and challenging career as a paralegal, then Fayetteville Technical Community College and its paralegal technology program are for you. FTCC offers two programs in paralegal studies: the associate degree in applied science program and the diploma program.
