Answer:

Yes, a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) student could potentially apply for a legal secretary job. It is important to note, however, that each employer will require their own set of requirements for the job position so make sure to read the job posting carefully to make sure you check off the prerequisites for the job. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), secretaries often do not have any formal degree or certification, but rather gain their experience on the job. For legal secretaries though, employers may like to see that you have taken courses at a college that pertains to this job so you will already know some of the legal terminology required for the job or they may prefer that you have a bachelor's degree. This, however, is not required and once again is up to the discretion of the employer. So check job postings and the requirements to see if you qualify.
