Does a paralegal job involve a lot of social interaction with clients?

    I wouldn't say a lot but a significant amount, yes.   If you don't like talking to clients, playing phone tag, organizing conferences with lawyers & judges, that sometimes include a client, then the job is not for you.  Client interaction is a regular part of the job.  If you think the job is all sitting, watching a monitor and doing research, it is not.  A lot of it is drafting and formatting legal documents, and filing them.  Of course the more or less depends on what type of law you do and what your job is.  There is the discovery process, case review - so much more to the job.  Client interaction is always a part of it, especially in the discovery stage.

    I would say no, it's mostly a lot of research and aiding the lawyers. But it depends on what the legal firm is having you do. Sometimes, paralegals take statements from clients, etc.

    Mostly grunt work like research and filing. Any interaction with clients would be unusual.
