A legal secretary proposal is a document presented by a member of a law firm describing the requirement and responsibilities of a legal secretary. Lawyers and attorneys have numerous tasks they need to remember and take care of and a legal secretary helps them in basic clerical duties and reminding the lawyers of the things they are supposed to do. The legal secretary proposal must include what is expected of the candidate, for eg, he may have to answer calls, make appointments, typing and filing legal documents and so on. By handling these chores, the legal secretary takes off the pressure from the lawyer so that he can have more free time to concentrate on the case.
