Are you interested in a career in law? A paralegal? Legal executive? Solicitor? Did you know that you can work your way into law without having to go to university, which let’s face it, isn’t for everyone!

BigHand shares findings from a recent survey of over 800 legal support staff, giving new insight into the daily challenges and working experiences of support teams globally.
One of the biggest issues we encounter when we take over a law firm’s secretarial and administrative support function, is that the teams—whether document production, print and mailroom, front of house, or even PAs — might not have received training for a long period of time, either in the firm’s system or processes. This can lead to individuals completing tasks as they best see fit rather than in line with the firm’s expectation or requirement.
When law firms begin to research whether to outsource their secretarial and administrative support services, it can be difficult to know where to start. There’s a lot of information to take in, lots of jargon associated with outsourcing and the processes behind transferring services from in-house to a third party—all of which can act as a hindrance when exploring the possibilities available to your firm.
From the outset, you need to know why you are outsourcing and therefore what to expect from the provider you select to use.
