Make the case for a better future.

This program is designed to offer education in paralegal studies. Core courses prepare students to assist attorneys by drafting legal documents, interacting with clients, and assisting in court. Students will conduct research and prepare memoranda to aid attorneys in resolving legal issues. Students will learn to assist attorneys with discovery, which includes responding to interrogatories, producing documents, and interviewing witnesses. Students may use their paralegal education in private law firms, corporations, nonprofit organizations, court systems, real estate title companies, banks, insurance companies, healthcare companies, local, state, and federal government agencies.

A paralegal is 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 a lawyer is responsible. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law. This program has been approved by the American Bar Association at the Auburn Hills campus.

I meant what I said about attorneys being envious and impressed by the program at Baker. I think that the way the classes are structured and the material that was covered helped me out tremendously. It really is a perfect combination of learning about the law and then learning what the practical application is...I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am – all because I made one really smart decision – to enroll in the paralegal program at Baker. I know I worked hard, but at the same time, I recognize that I have also been very fortunate. You created a terrific program, and I am proud to be a Baker graduate.
