Paralegal Certificate

This program prepares students to assist lawyers and administrators of law-related occupations in providing efficient legal services to the public. The program of study includes law-related courses and legal specialty courses.

Students who already possess a(n) Associate in Science, Associate in Art, Bachelor’s, or higher degree may apply for a paralegal certificate upon successful completion of the paralegal courses only.

The paralegal courses are offered primarily in the evening. Courses prepare students for entry into a paralegal career and provide presently employed paralegals an opportunity to enhance their legal knowledge and skills. The Paralegal program does not train graduates to provide legal services directly to the public. Any person who attempts to provide legal services directly to the public, but is not licensed to practice law, engages in the illegal and unauthorized practice of law. The Paralegal program is approved by the American Bar Association.

Students must take at least ten semester credits or the equivalend of legal specialty courses through traditional classroom instruction as required by the American Bar Association

Students wishing to enroll in the Paralegal Program, must complete an Admission Request. Students must make an appointment to meet with and advisor to present the Admission Request for processing. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Counseling and Advising Office.
