The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
While doing some fun but intensive research for an article on paralegal careers, I am reviewing many interesting paralegal job postings across the country. I think some of them are way too cool to keep to myself. Hence, Practical Paralegalism’s “Paralegal Posting of the Week” is born.
This week it’s work for the Central Intelligence Agency in Washington, DC. Where do I sign up? Maybe it’s just great copy-writing, but it’s hard to resist this job description:
The Central Intelligence Agency is seeking Paralegal professionals to provide case management, legal research, case-cite verification, blue book citations and general paralegal support to the Office of General Counsel. Paralegals support legal issues relating to foreign intelligence, counterintelligence activities, and both civil and criminal litigation.
Requirements for this job are:
Degree: Paralegal certificate
Experience: A broad range of experience in the legal profession; the ability to research, analyze and organize effectively
Software: Internet (LEXIS-NEXIS and PACER)
Skills: Legal research, PC, strong written and oral communications
The salary’s not too shabby, at $60,989 – $79,280, although the cost of living in the DC area is high. The application requirements do include submission of a legal writing sample.
