The Demand for Legal Assistants in Indiana. Indiana College-Level Manpower Study. Report Number Six.
Greenberg, Robert M.; Tully, Richard B.
The Indiana College-Level Manpower Study is being conducted by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to provide manpower information of value to planning at the postsecondary level. Factors involving both manpower supply and demand are being investigated. This report deals with a survey assessing the demand for legal assistants in Indiana. Of the 887 firms surveyed, 504 usable returns were received. Analysis of the survey revealed numbers of full-time legal secretaries and legal assistants employed by size of firm; views toward the statement "a good legal secretary can do about anything a legal assistant can do"; views on the effect of hiring assistants on the number of employment opportunities of law school graduates; benefits of utilizing legal assistants by size of firm; preferred education and training backgrounds for legal assistants; activities of legal assistants; and anticipated starting salaries of legal assistants by size of firm.
