Entering a career as a court reporter will enable you to have a prestigious career in law without the many years of education and training required by other legal professions.
So what exactly is a court reporter? Court reporters record legal proceedings, preserving all the spoken words and sometimes actions in a written transcript. This transcript is available to jurors, attorneys, and other legal personnel and serves as an official record of what happened during the court proceeding.
Earn an average of $45,000 a year as a court reporter. In addition to the high salary, it's a field that is expected to grow faster than the average occupation over the next decade.
