Entry Level Paralegal (Downtown) (New York, NY)

[Ed.-- I have never seen an "LSAT Disadvantage" listing before.  One wonders how the employer plans to verify that his prospective employee has never taken the LSAT.  The insistence on a "top 200" undergrad-- apparently, school #200 offers invaluable skills you just can't get from #201]

Entry Level Paralegal (Downtown) 

Major mass litigation firm has openings for Entry Level Paralegals in their Bankruptcy department. 


Job responsibility include: internet research, communicating with clients, reviewing documents, 

Job requirements: Experience interacting with clients, heavy phones, following and documenting processes/internships are OK. Must have a 4 year degree, from a top 200 college and graduated with a GPA over 3.5 and majored in Pre-Law, Political Science, Economics, Communications, etc. 

- Must be willing to make a 2+ year commitment (ideally even more long term) 
- Cannot have taken the LSAT or have a date registered for the LSAT
