Integral to the hiring process is an accurate job description. For employers in the legal profession, the job description serves as an important foundation for the resume screening, interview and candidate selection phases of the hiring process. For job seekers, a well-written job description clearly defines the work expectations of the hiring organization, as well as the experience and capabilities required for an open position.
Robert Half Legal’s Glossary of Legal Job Descriptions includes an overview of typical skills, educational background and duties for numerous legal positions in law firms and corporate legal departments in Canada. The information was derived from the thousands of full-time, temporary and project placements made through Robert Half Legal and the market knowledge of our recruiting and staffing professionals. While the job descriptions provide an overview of typical responsibilities and skill requirements, job descriptions will vary based on the size of the legal organization and other factors.
