This program will provide students with the legal knowledge and administrative skills to serve as paralegals, working closely with not only attorneys in law firms, but also corporations, real estate companies, government agencies and the banking industry.
This 24 credit-hour certificate program will focus on realistic projects, case studies, and practical application of classroom instruction. In both the classroom and through internships the students will develop professional networking relationships and have the opportunity to investigate various aspects of the paralegal/legal assistant profession. The program provides the educational background enabling the student to prepare for and take the NALA and NALS national certification exams.
Employment of legal assistants is projected to grow 12 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Formally trained paralegals with strong computer and database management skills should have the best job prospects.
