Paralegal Studies Certificate

Effective Fall 2013

 
 

Only students who have completed an Associate of Arts or Science degree or higher are eligible to enroll in this Certificate program.

 

According to the American Bar Association, “a legal assistant or paralegal is 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.” Paralegals are not licensed and always work under the supervision of an attorney. The goal of both the degree and certificate programs is to prepare students to become entry-level paralegals.
