Although I am not yet in law school, I am working as a paralegal and applying for law school. For what it's worth, the attorneys in the firm where I work claim that the paralegals in law school performed well. I think that the fact that I work daily with civil procedure may help some in a civil procedure class. I attended an ABA-approved paralegal school, and that coursework may benefit me, also. Still, most of the people who post on this website seem to have extremely high scores and excellent undergraduate educations. Nothing about my work will help me compete against them. At best, I have a head-start in knowing how to brief a case. I'm sure that most admission committees prefer high LSAT & GPA to any length of experience as a paralegal.
