Gain legal knowledge at Humphreys College

The Paralegal Studies Department equips our students with what the need to know to achieve success in productive legal work. The degree program not only provides students with an extensive comprehension of legal terms and procedures, but it also offers a strong foundation in liberal arts and business. The courses are intended to train students to locate employment as legal assistants, paralegals, and many other positions in the business world that may necessitate legal knowledge.

A graduate with a degree in Paralegal Studies can work in places such as:

  • law offices
  • real estate
  • banking
  • estate planning
  • document firms
  • and even government agencies

Many students will choose to continue their education at Humphreys College Lawrence Drivon School of Law, or one of several other law schools in the Central Valley area, and use their Paralegal Studies degree as a starting point on that path.

Classes in Paralegal Studies are held mostly in the evenings, making it more convenient for students with full time jobs. This course of study can lead to a bachelors of arts degree as a major, a supplemental minor, or, after 90 quarter units, a certificate of completion.
