At LSW, paralegals are a critical part of our legal teams and typically have higher levels of responsibility than at larger firms. We offer challenging projects that will help you gain extensive experience working side-by-side with lawyers and other highly skilled professionals. Our paralegals learn to collaborate effectively, analyze information and communicate with clarity and precision. The engaging work at LSW has inspired many of our paralegals to attend law school and go on pursue successful careers in government, in academia, at companies large and small, and at leading law firms.
“The paralegals here work closely with partners and associates and get the kind of experience they just would not get at a big firm. A lot is asked of them, but they receive a lot in return.”- Associate

The same intellectual curiosity and dedication to craft that draws great lawyers to LSW serves them well after they leave the firm.
You’ll find our alumni in senior positions at U.S. attorneys’ offices, state prosecutors’ offices, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, among other government agencies. They serve as law professors, mediators, and partners at Wall Street and boutique law firms alike. Our alumni ranks also include lawyers in general counsel’s offices for international banks and corporations, as well as public interest and human rights organizations and universities.
Our alumni enjoy lifelong friendships and professional connections that continue long after they leave the firm. We are proud of their successes.
“A lot of lawyers come to LSW to develop their skills before applying for positions in government—it’s a set path. The partners are very familiar with that process and will encourage you to go for it.”Former Associate
