Description

The practice of law is comprised of a team including paralegals. In modern law offices, paralegals are assuming a growing range of legal duties and are an integral part of the legal team, working, under the direct supervision of an attorney. Delaware Tech’s ABA-approved Legal Studies program will prepare you for this career, or to use your skills to further your education in preparation for law school. You will learn to use a range of research methods and information necessary to complete a variety of legal activities including producing the documents necessary for a functioning law office. To supplement classroom knowledge and applications, you’ll also be required to complete an internship allowing you to gain the valuable work experience that employers seek. As a graduate of the program, you’ll be able to pursue career opportunities in federal, state and local governmental agencies, law firms, the court system, banks, insurance companies, private business, and corporations, or transfer to four-year institutions to further your education in preparation for law school. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as provided by law.
