Enroll at College of Southern Nevada Paralegal Program

The objective of the Paralegal Studies course is to provide students with the skills necessary to enable them to aid members of the legal profession in their work with the public. The study program qualifies graduates to work with attorneys in public and corporate law offices, and also in private law practices. A combination of substantive law and an in-depth study of legal procedures provides a good practical grounding to enable graduates to provide high-quality work under the supervision of an attorney. Those in occupations related to law will also find the program useful in improving and supplementing their legal skills.

The Association of Applied Science Degree in Paralegal Studies prepares students to help the legal profession in their dealings with the public. Graduates will be qualified to work in occupations that are related to the law, such as legal assistants in corporate and private law practices and in public and local authority legal departments. A combination of practical knowledge of legal procedures together with substantive law will prepare graduates to carry out high quality legal work under the direction of a licensed attorney. Those currently employed in occupations connected with the legal profession will also find this course useful in improving and supplementing their skills.
