According to the U.S. Government’s Department of Labor, the demand for paralegals is projected to grow 22 percent through 2016, much faster than the average for all other professions.
But while employment prospects for paralegals is excellent, the government report goes on to say, “Competition for paralegal jobs is expected to continue as many people seek to go into this profession; formally trained paralegals should have the best employment opportunities.”
