My main work experience is at a "boutique" law firm, which actually only has one practicing attorney. I am a legal assistant who drafts/edits simpler pleadings, discovery, correspondence, and performs some administrative duties. I have experience working with cases in different courts (bankruptcy, district, and state).
My question is this, would my resume/work experience (from the perspective of law school admissions) be better off if I moved to a bigger law firm? From my understanding, I would probably be doing less actual legal work and more secretarial/filing clerk duties.
Also, does my current experience qualify as being a paralegal? I am in California.
And lastly, should I be boosting my resume with other volunteer or clinic experience? How important is this? Opportunities are limited when you work all day, every week day.
Thank you in advance.

It's borderline irrelevant what you do unless you want NU, Yale or Stanford. LSAT + GPA is what really matter in LS admissions
