Not all of the key people who work in law offices are attorneys. One crucial person in the law office is the legal administrator--the person who keeps the day to day operations of the firm running smoothly.


The legal administrator manages the business side of a law firm as well as law office operations. She takes care of the planning and controlling of the firm's finances, identifies the changing needs of the firm, plans marketing strategies and shares the information with the partners to whom she reports, according to

Education and Knowledge

According to, the legal administrator should have educational training in business administration, human resources, technology and marketing. She should also know something about how legal organisations function.

The job of a legal administrator is expected to grow more slowly than average until 2014, according to


According to, the average salary for a legal administrator is £45,779.
