Paralegal's Role at Trial

June 17

Understand key strategies which all paralegals should understand before being a member of the trial team.

A paralegal’s role at trial is indispensable. The paralegal is responsible for ensuring that the attorney and the client have everything within reach to prove their case while using the time allotted for their case in chief efficiently. In the courtroom trial paralegals assist with voir dire, jury selection and exhibit presentation. Just like a theatre director, the paralegal coordinates all of the unseen elements of the trial. If these elements are not in place, they become obvious and will take away from the overall trial presentation. It is imperative that the paralegal be a proactive part of the trial process.
