You are here

Legal Assistants go by many different titles depending on the organization they work in.  They are sometimes referred to as Legal Office Assistants, Legal Administrative Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Real Estate Secretaries, Litigation Secretaries, Trademark Secretaries, Family Law Legal Assistant, Commercial Law Secretaries and Corporate Law Secretaries.

Fundamentally there are two core positions other than lawyers that make up the legal team:

Legal Assistants which generally perform administrative duties in law firms and corporate legal departments, real estate companies, land title offices, municipality, provincial and federal courts,  and

Paralegals which in some jurisdictions can represent matters such as litigation in small claims court, traffic and other offenses heard in Provincial Offenses Court, Hearings before tribunals like Landlord and Tenant Boards or Workplace Safety and Insurance Boards and some Minor criminal charges under the Criminal Code heard in the Ontario Court of Justice.
