Paralegal Studies A.A.S. (PLG)
What is an Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies?
Students will gain an understanding of what paralegals can accomplish, as well as the limitations imposed by the unauthorized practice of law statute. Internships provide students with practical experience in the paralegal field. Students may also transfer credits to various four-year colleges or universities toward a bachelor’s degree.
The Paralegal Studies Associate Degree program is approved by the American Bar Association (ABA).
LCCC’s Paralegal Studies program options are primarily offered through synchronous instruction. Paralegal Studies classes may be enhanced with synchronous materials. Paralegal Studies students must take at least nine-semester credits or the equivalent of legal specialty courses through synchronous instruction.
