"Employment for paralegals and legal assistant is projected to grow much faster than average* - this is in relation to all occupations through 2014. Private law firms will still be the largest employers of paralegals, but a growing array of other organizations, such as corporate legal departments, insurance companies, real estate and title insurance firms, and banks will start to hire more and more paralegals as well. Corporations in particular are adding to their in-house legal departments to cut overhead costs. The number of available paralegal positions is expected to increase as our growing population requires increased legal services particularly with regard to intellectual property, healthcare, international law, elder law, criminal law, and environmental law." (U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos114.htm#outlook)
