Paralegal Studies

Career Coach buttonOur Paralegal Studies Program provides training for paralegals. Paralegals help lawyers prepare for hearings, trials, real estate closings and client meetings and may assist an attorney in many specialized areas of law.

Paralegals may assist an attorney in any of the following areas of service:

  • Civil litigation
  • Wills, trusts and probate
  • Tort litigation
  • Family law
  • Estate planning and taxation
  • Bankruptcy
  • Real estate law
  • Labor law
  • Criminal law
  • Corporate law

The need for paralegals has increased substantially during the past decade as society has turned more and more frequently to the legal community for advice.

Our Paralegal Studies Program does not qualify you to:

  • Take a Bar exam

  • Give legal advice

The Paralegal Studies program is offered on Northeast Campus.
