The Associate in Science in Legal Assisting is a 68-credit hour program to prepare students for employment as legal assistants (also known as paralegals) in a variety of settings such as law offices, courthouses and state agencies. Students receive education in many areas of law, legal research and general office skills. This sample sequence should be followed closely by students; some adjustments may need to be made due to reduced summer offerings or other circumstances. Many courses are offered only once per year. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the Certified Legal Assistant Exam sponsored by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) without additional minimum employment history requirements.
