Paralegals work not only in law offices, but in corporations and government offices, and as freelance paralegals. Paralegals spend their workdays on a wide variety of tasks, ranging from preparing deeds and purchase and sale agreements in real estate, to organizing exhibits for trial in litigation. Paralegals work in all areas of law, from bankruptcy to business litigation, and their workdays vary based on the area of law in which they practice. No matter what area of law or setting a paralegal works in, a paralegal is always overseen by a lawyer, as paralegals are not licensed to practice law. With the ever-changing nature of law, a paralegal's "typical" workday is always subject to change.
