Paralegal Studies

Law offices and courts don’t function without knowledgeable, trained paralegals and clerks.

The paralegal profession (also known as legal assistant) is dynamic and growing. The efficient law office of today is incomplete without the prudent use of paralegals, working under the supervision of lawyers. As a key fixture in the legal services landscape of the 21st Century, paralegals can generate profitability to law firms, lower bills for clients and contribute toward cost-effective management of law firms.

Face-to-face, classroom-based learning experiences are valued in the program, although some classes may be offered online or as in-class/online hybrid experiences.
