Could anyone please comment (more knowledgeably than I) on the following question I received about how much actual legal research editors can be asked to do ... are paralegals or specialists generally asked to handle most of the legal research that attorneys themselves choose not to do? If specialists, how can such individuals or organizations best be located?

The inquirer would like to be involved in legal research as well as in editing legal material (perhaps also writing it, since he's had substantial experience doing so).

Does the occasion ever arise or is there a market niche where the editor is also engaged to conduct any sort of research, as in, say, legal research?

Thanks very much,

-- Judy
