Paralegal & Legal Studies
Paralegal is a fast-growing field, and careers involve working side-by-side with attorneys in law firms, corporations, and court settings. Both FLCC programs are approved by the American Bar Association.
Through this degree program, you'll acquire the foundational knowledge and high-level skills that are required in the paralegal field. Your expertise will prepare you for common legal specialty areas, such as real property law, family law, or trust and estate law.
If you hold an associate degree or higher college degree, this certificate program is designed to prepare you for a new career as a paralegal. The core courses in this program focus on legal theory, practical legal skills, and the twenty-first century office environment.
