Making the Transition from Paralegal to Litigation Support

Paralegals are critical members of law firms and other organizations but are there things you can do to further increase your value in your organization and secure new career opportunities? Join this new webinar on Making the Transition from Paralegal to Litigation Support where ediscovery experts from Thomson Reuters will discuss how developing skills in ediscovery and other technology can expand your contribution to your organization and make you a marketable litigation support candidate.

After attending the webinar, you will gain insight into:

  • Skills you need to develop to become a litigation support professional
  • Challenges litigation support professionals need to be prepared to handle
  • How expectations for litigation support differ from those for paralegals
  • Resources available to help you make the transition
