Paralegals help keep the wheels of justice moving
Paralegals draft legal documents, perform research, and assist attorneys before and during trials. Paralegals, also known as legal assistants, have a vast array of employment opportunities in both government and the private sector. Classes are taught by local attorneys and are offered nights and weekends to suit your learning needs. An associate of applied science degree and an advanced technical certificate are available.
Paralegals work in private law firms, corporations, government agencies, and public interest law offices. Courses focus on subjects such as family law, real property, wills and trusts, civil litigation, contracts, and legal writing, among others.
