Hi everyone,

This board has helped me tremendously during my recent job search. I'm currently a 2L and am working part-time at a firm. However, I'm perplexed as to what my "title" is-- law clerk or paralegal? I know "law clerk" term gets thrown around, often gratuitously, and would like some clear definitions on the matter.

In the short time I have been working, my duties have included: data management for hundreds of plaintiffs (complex toxic tort case), drafting meet and confer letters, as well as drafting objections to discovery.
