Legal assistant /Paralegal Program at Des Moines Area Community College

The Legal Assistant/Paralegal Program at Des Moines Area Community College prepares students to work for busy lawyers who typically need help to perform a variety of important, and sometimes tedious, legal services on a daily basis.

They are find work in a number of different places, such as:
  • private law firms
  • courts
  • public agencies
  • legal departments of the large companies
  • and some even work in other departments that are linked to law, like:
    • investigation
    • collections
    • bank trust departments

The United States Department of Labor projects that from now through the year 2014, employment opportunities for paralegals and legal assistants will see above-average growth. The American Bar Association readily endorses this program.

Legal assistants and Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public and must work under the supervision of a lawyer.
