Paralegal Studies

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies is designed to give the paralegal a broad background in many different areas of the law. Through practical “how to” courses, students learn about the legal system, acquire skills used in law offices, and are taught the professional and ethical responsibilities of a paralegal. Certificate courses apply to the associate’s degree.

The Legal Assistant Certificate prepares students in basic legal office skills. The courses apply to the Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies.
