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 ALANet.org.
Education and Knowledge
According to ALANet.org, 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.
A law firm that employs a legal administrator earns the firm more billable hours in the long run, because the attorneys are not spending time doing administrative tasks, but rather practicing law, according to Joel A. Rose, a law firm management consultant, on his website.
The job of a legal administrator is expected to grow more slowly than average until 2014, according to Monster.com.
According to CBSalary.com, the average salary for a legal administrator is £45,779.
