Hi, I want to know what should be the desired typing speed for someone who is a paralegal staff?
The typing speed should be 60 WPM.
Paralegals work in law offices and generally provide administrative support to attorneys. In this role, you can be asked to conduct research, document organization, and dictation services. As most law offices are on tight deadlines and schedules, you will need to be fast and efficient.

In general, the average typist can type 41 WPM; typing at or above 57 WPM is deemed above average. That should give you an idea of the level you’d need to reach for any sort of typing-related job.
Thankfully with programs like Typesy, you can drastically improve your WPM within weeks if you commit the time and dedication.
