Course of Study
As a paralegal studies student, you will learn the basics of American law. This field of study has a rich history rooted in English common law, and has since been expanded and re-defined by court cases, legislation, and administrative proceedings. You will be prepared to grasp legal concepts and engage in legal analysis. These skills are especially helpful for paralegals interested in critical, law-defining cases such as appeals and other high court decisions. The proper curriculum for a paralegal program will include courses that cover legal terminology, practices and ethics. A full paralegal program should also include non-legal subjects such as computer training. This will help a paralegal student prepare to work in the modern legal office.
