Be well able to conduct legal research with software and tools, such as Westlaw, LexisNexis and the like.  Have the habit of staying current with relevant laws and precedents and have research means and methods. Good verbal and written communication skills are necessary for drafting legal documents and communicating with clients, colleagues, the tribunal and opposing counsel.

This requires case management skills, precision in legal writing, a professional demeanor at depositions and hearings.  Be hard-working, motivated, have a positive attitude and be capable of doing independent work.

This work is done remotely.  This is a part-time independent contract position that could be scaled to full time.
