The job of the legal secretary is highly important to the running of a successful Law Firm or Legal team in-house. They not only carry out the administrative and organisational tasks required in a Law Firm, but a good Legal Secretary usually manages the professional (and sometimes personal) life of a Partner and/ or the other Legal professionals in the firm. Legal Secretaries also come in many different shapes and sizes with regards to their experience and backgrounds. For example, the job of a Litigation Legal Secretary will be different to that of a Corporate, Property, Conveyancing or float Legal Secretary in that Litigation Secretaries will usually be good at dictations, organising case files etc while a Legal Secretary in Conveyancing or Property will be helping to type and send letters dictated to them to forward the transaction of a Property. A good team of secretaries who are focused and organised can be the oil to keep an engine running healthily.
