Why are Certificate Program Graduates Paid More?
Attorneys are interested in legal secretaries who can perform specific law related tasks efficiently and accurately. They want, and are willing to pay for, legal secretaries who possess skills that make them and their firm more productive. As a general rule, attorneys don't care about the geometry, psychology, and other general study courses an employee has taken. They care about whether the employee can maintain a client file, whether an employee can conduct legal research, whether an employee can draft legal documents, and perform other relevant tasks. Legal Secretary Certificate programs offer training in the specific skills attorneys are looking for in their paralegal employees.
