All the required core paralegal classes are offered during evening and weekend hours and the program is designed so one can complete the certificate within two semesters or the associate’s degree in four semesters. Gain the skills and knowledge for entry-level positions as paralegals, working under the supervision of attorneys. What our graduates say about the program:

 

“The paralegal program at RCC gave me the knowledge and fundamentals to start a career as a paralegal” ~ Nancy Rodriguez Valdes

 

“Changing careers can be stressful and filled with uncertainty, but the job placement resources at RCC made the process quick and painless. With help from the job placement center and the dedicated paralegal faculty, I was able to find two great internships and a full-time job before even finishing the program”
~ Matthew Fleischmann

 

“The Paralegal Studies Program at Rockland Community College took me from student to full-time Legal Assistant by not only teaching me the skills necessary to be successful in the field, but by providing me with work placement opportunities and support long after I had graduated.”
~ Andrew Rutledge

The American Bar Association defines a paralegal as a person, qualified by education, training or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which the lawyer is responsible. Examples of some paralegal responsibilities include interviewing clients and witnesses, preparing legal documents, assisting at trials, and investigating and performing legal research. Paralegals are not permitted to practice law, which means that they cannot give legal advice, represent clients in court, set a legal fee or accept a case.
