Program Advising

Legal Assisting AAS

A legal assistant is a highly skilled paraprofessional with specialized training who works under the direct supervision of an attorney. Job responsibilities require knowledge of law and legal procedures in rendering direct assistance to lawyers and clients and include such tasks as client interviewing, case investigation, preparation of pleadings and conduct of legal research. The Legal Assisting program was planned in accordance with the American Bar Association and the American Association for Paralegal Education guidelines.

The complexity of legal concepts and procedures requires a demanding curriculum. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree. Legal assisting courses are usually offered in the evening so those employed may have the opportunity to enter this degree program.  For more information on this program, contact Gerald Hough at This email address is being protected from spambots.
