One of a series of 12 in the secretarial/clerical area, this booklet for the vocational instructor contains a job description for the legal secretary, a task list of areas of competency, an occupational tasks competency record (suggested as replacement for the traditional report card), a list of industry representatives and educators involved in developing the project, and statements of competencies and a separate competency record for the area of human relations and personal development. Job duties listed for the legal secretary require a knowledge of legal office procedures and competence in the use of legal terminology and legal documents, as well as in the basic secretarial skills of typing, correspondence, and office practices. Areas of competency in human relations and personal development are included (communication, self-development, personal appearance, office attitude, social and business etiquette, and job-seeking skills). Statements of competencies may be graded at either the secondary or postsecondary level, and the competency records are intended to follow the student through vocational training at both levels. Tasks in the task list are cross referenced with those in the booklets for other secretarial/clerical jobs. (MF)
