Paralegal Studies Certificate

The Paralegal Certificate serves those students who desire to upgrade their professional competence but do not necessarily wish to complete the entire Associate of Applied Science Accounting Degree. All courses in the certificate program can be applied to the Associate of Science Degree in Legal Studies, should a student later opt to do so.

Students are given a strong academic grounding and practical experience in many different areas of study, including legal research, legal writing, and legal interviewing. Students will also develop competency in substantive areas of law.
