Careful with legal recruiters. Not all of them are useful. They get you all amped with snazzy job ads (many of them are fake), bring you in to fill out lots of paper work and take tests and then nothing....or you get sent to interview for crap admin jobs. If you get called in to interview with a legal recruiter and they do not interview you for a specific position, don't expect much.
Biglaw will generally recruit on campus or post on their website.
I just wanted to say that this was the exact opposite of my experience. Neither of the two biglaw firms I worked for, nor the others I interviewed with, actually hired through the posts on their website. All of those positions were filled through legal recruiters or internally. My experiences in assisting with hiring additional staff never involved, nor even mentioned, on-campus recruitment for paralegal positions. My experiences are based in Boston and NYC, so obviously YMMV.
