Certificate

Paralegals are trained specialists who, under the supervision of an attorney, perform a wide variety of legal tasks. These tasks may include legal research, law office management and preparation of legal documents. Only an attorney may provide legal services directly to the public.

Students who have already earned an A.A., A.S., A.A.S., B.A. or B.S. degree can earn the certificate.
