Dear Campus Community,

If you need to contact a department, please navigate to their web page, and then locate their contact information in the page (or sidebar menu) and contact them directly via email or contact form.

Paralegal Studies

The Paralegal Studies program is designed to give the paralegal a broad background in many different areas of the law. Through practical “how to” courses, students learn about the legal system, acquire skills used in law offices, and are taught the professional and ethical responsibilities of a paralegal. Graduates are eligible to take the national certification offered by the National Association of Legal Assistants. Those who successfully complete this two-day exam are designated Certified Legal Assistants (CLA), and approved for institutional membership by the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE).
