Casey Anthony learned so much about the legal system while preparing for the trail for her 2-year-old's daughter murder, that she is considering becoming a paralegal, her attorney, Charles Greene, told ABC on Monday.

"I truly believe that she has a lot of skills," Greene said. "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."

Since being acquitted of killing her daughter in 2011, Anthony went into hiding to escape from public scrutiny. Having been unemployed for over 4 years, she filed for bankruptcy last week, claiming she has over $800,000 in debt and less than $1,000 in assets, CNN reported.

Greene told ABC, Anthony "believes strongly in our justice system" and that "she may be the type that ends up trying to work within our system to make our system better rather than being a person who's trying to break it down."

The 26-year-old mother might be using her experience defending herself from a defamation suit from Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, who claims Anthony ruined her reputation, as practice for her potential new career.

Nonetheless, Greene thinks Anthony is far from being ready to re-join society and do regular things. In fact, he told ABC the Florida mother's life would "never be normal."

"You don't go from the most hated woman in the world, according to some media outlets, to being a normal person or being able to live a normal life," Greene said. "I'm not saying she's not a normal person, but people do not perceive her as a normal person."
