Casey Anthony may now be mulling over a career in the courtroom.

The Florida mother who was charged with -- and later acquitted of -- the killing of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, may be weighing a career as a paralegal, according to ABC News.

"I truly believe that she has a lot of skills," her current lawyer Charles Greene said in an interview with ABC. "She's better than many paralegals I know. She could be a paralegal or something like that right away. She is very organized, a very intelligent, very computer savvy person, so I think her skills and her desire may lie somewhere in that field."

Greene noted that 26-year-old Anthony continues to receive threats and is emotionally fragile from years of hiding. Any hint of an Anthony sighting is still enough to send the paparazzi running.

In December, for example, a gossip site published photos purportedly showing Anthony eating chicken wings at a restaurant in South Florida.

This is not the first time Anthony, through her proxies, has reportedly expressed interest in the criminal justice field.

The week she was released from jail, Anthony attorney Ann Finnell said her client's experience as a defendant could make her an asset as a lawyer.

"She's been exposed to the criminal justice system and I think that might be a pursuit of hers," Finnell told People magazine at the time. "Whether it's a paralegal or an advocate for social justice issues, I don't know," adding that Anthony has "an obvious knack" for it.

Last week, Anthony filed for bankruptcy in Tampa, claiming about $1,100 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities, according to CBS and the Associated Press. Anthony, who still owes about $500,000 in attorney fees and costs for criminal defense lawyer Jose Baez, is also a defendant in several ongoing civil suits.
