After completing the Paralegal Studies A.S. program at EFSC, graduates have the knowledge and skills that are necessary to assist attorneys in the practice of law.
Paralegal duties may include legal research; drafting of memoranda, legal forms, and correspondence; client interviews, case investigation and witness interviews; case and practice management; as well as participation in trials.
Paralegals work in traditional private law firms, agencies of the state and national government, offices for criminal prosecution and criminal defense, and the legal departments of corporations involved in banking, insurance, real estate, and technology.
The Paralegal Studies program is offered through traditional on-campus classes in the day and in the evening. Law classes are available through distance learning, and an internship affords the student an opportunity to gain practical experience in a real world setting.
Graduates are eligible to become certified through successful completion of the certification examination from the National Association of Legal Assistants.
