Welcome to NALS of New York, Inc.

Paralegals and legal assistants are the backbone of our legal system

They do a variety of tasks to support lawyers, such as legal research, drafting documents and file organization and maintenance. Most working paralegals and legal assistants have completed an associate’s degree or certificate program in paralegal studies, but many employers will prefer, or require, applicants to have a bachelor’s degree.
