A Message From Brookdale’s President
Welcome to Brookdale! You join close to 100,000 friends and neighbors taking advantage of the resources and offerings of the County College of Monmouth. As one of the largest higher education institutions in New Jersey, Brookdale takes great pride in continuously challenging the future – with you in mind. Did you know that Brookdale is consistently listed as one of the top 50 community colleges in the United States? That we are the number one Associate Degree granting college in New Jersey? A nationally recognized leader in technology, Brookdale has invested over $25 million in its technology infrastructure systems and direct student technology access services. The $100 million campus facility master plan has enabled new Counseling, Admission and Registration Centers, a stateof-the-art Bankier Library as well as a Student Life Center complete with college and convenience stores, meeting spaces and dedicated space for student use. The expanded Automotive Technologies building opened in Spring 2010 and an expanded Arena and new Fitness Lab is expected to be completed in 2011. One of every four Brookdale students is enrolled in a class at one of our Higher Education Centers. All of our Centers have been equipped with the latest in technology, expansive student success centers and convenient parking. Extensive renovations have taken place at the Long Branch Higher Education Center and over $10 million dollars in renovations have been completed at the Western Monmouth Branch Campus. At the Wall Higher Education Center, home of the New Jersey Coastal Communiversity, we provide a broad array of Baccalaureate and graduate programs - including over 40 degrees available from Georgian Court University - to record-setting numbers of residents of Monmouth County. You, our Monmouth County neighbors, are the reason that Brookdale was founded. You are the reason we continue to grow and challenge the future. Thanks for joining us!

Peter F. Burnham, Ph.D.

Paralegal Studies Program A.A.S. Degree
The Paralegal Studies Program is approved by the American Bar Association, Standing Committee on Legal Assistants, 541 North Fairbanks Court, Chicago, IL 60611, (312) 988-5522, and is also an institutional member of the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE), and maintains a chapter of the Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) Honor Society. The purpose of this program is to train paralegals/legal assistants. It is not intended to be a program for training lawyers or legal administrators. A paralegal/legal assistant may not engage in the practice of law by accepting cases, giving legal advice, appearing in court, setting fees, etc. Engaging in the unauthorized practice of law is a criminal offense in the State of New Jersey. The New Jersey State Bar Association defines a paralegal/ legal assistant as “an individual qualified through education, training or work experience who is retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity to perform, under the direction and supervision of a lawyer, specifically delegated substantive legal work, which for the most part requires sufficient knowledge of legal concepts and which, absent the paralegal or legal assistant, would be performed by a lawyer.” The Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility of the National Association of Legal Assistants, Inc., in its Preamble, provides that it is the responsibility of every paralegal/legal assistant to adhere strictly to the accepted standards of legal ethics and to live by general principles of proper conduct. The performance of duties of the paralegal/legal assistant is governed by specific canons of ethics in order that justice will be served and the goals of the profession attained. This program, while not designed for transfer, may transfer in part or in its entirety to four-year schools.

Graduates of this program will be able to: f Draft legal documents f Exhibit technology skills f Perform computerized legal research f Utilize legal software programs f Utilize word processing to draft legal documents f Demonstrate ethical/professional responsibility
