The body of knowledge required to effectively perform legal support services can only come from a formal education in paralegal studies. As attorneys, corporations and government agencies work within an increasingly complex legal framework, the level of responsibility they expect paralegals to be able to take on has also increased. Law offices and other employers in Florida have come to rely on paralegals with the kind of expertise that can only come from earning a certificate or degree in paralegal studies.
