Legal Secretaries

(NOC 1242)


These comments apply to the career group Secretaries, Recorders and Transcriptionists, which includes Legal Secretaries.

Job openings will be strong as a result of the very high retirement rate. The retirement rate for secretaries, recorders and transcriptionists will be among the highest for all occupations, primarily because workers in this occupation are generally much older than the average.

Employers are looking for candidates who have a college diploma in paralegal technology.

Employers' efforts to find more versatile employees definitely favour paralegals (NOC 4211) over legal secretaries.
