Minor in Paralegal Studies
The minor in paralegal studies provides instruction in legal research and writing, a background in the structure of the courts and government agencies, as well as additional preparation for the paralegal profession.
The minor consists of four required courses and four electives. While most employers do not require certification, students completing the program can sit for the two-day National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) examination. Those passing this examination are entitled to use the certified Legal Assistant (CLA) designation.
