Prepare to be a paralegal in less time than you think.

Law offices can be exciting places to work, but you don’t necessarily have to go to law school or pass the bar exam to work in one. You don’t even have to spend four years in school. Our associate’s degree paralegal program can help you learn what you need to start building a career as soon as possible.

This program helps you learn the skills you’ll need to effectively help lawyers with their cases. Paralegals aren’t able to directly offer legal services to the public, but they can assist lawyers with many different types of tasks, like interviewing witnesses, writing legal documents, conducting research, and helping out in court. Our classes are led by lawyers and working paralegals, so you’ll be learning from people who know best what skills and information you’ll need to on the job.

In less than four years, you’ll have an incredible amount of new career opportunities available to you. As a graduate of this program, you’ll be able to find entry-level employment as a paralegal in any type of law office, including at private law firms, government agencies, corporations, and other organizations.
