Forbes Includes Paralegals on List of Fastest-Growing Jobs for Women

Forbes has published a list of “The 20 Fastest-Growing Jobs for Women,” based on employment statistics compiled by researcher Laurence Shatkin, author of Best Jobs for the 21st Century. Paralegals and legal assistants are represented well at number 12. We were beaten by skin care specialists, athletic trainers, and a number of jobs in the health care field. But we were included in the three jobs on the list that have a median annual salary of $40,000 or more.


The paralegal profession is fast-growing but still largely female-dominated. I’d love to hear from my male readers who are earning paralegal degrees, or are currently working as paralegals, about their experiences as the minority in this field. Source: Forbes
