The legal secretary is not a secretary like the others. With his legal knowledge, he assists all legal professionals: lawyers, bailiffs, notaries … in private practice. He can also work in the legal departments of companies, banks, insurance companies, and in administrations. Like any secretary, he takes care of text entry and processing, reception, switchboard, management of agendas, making appointments, organizing meetings, etc. Adaptability, availability, discretion, sense of the contact and organization, analytical skills and synthesis are among the essential qualities for this position. Without forgetting a great ease to work in a legal framework, in particular during the drafting of letters and the formatting of acts (contract, minutes, command to pay, lease …).
