The legal assistant—also referred to as a "paralegal"—has become, in
less than two decades, an integral part of the legal profession. This
program equips its graduates to function both as an attorney's
general assistant and as a highly competent specialist in a particular
area of law.
In addition to 16 hours of general education courses, all students must complete 48 hours of core courses.
Courses are structured and scheduled so that a student should be able to enter the program on either a full or part-time basis in any day or night term.
