Gain a successful career in the paralegal field

Legal Assistants and Paralegals are synonymous terms for professionals that help attorneys with predominantly substantive tasks for which it is not necessary in law to be a qualified lawyer to undertake.

Our legal assistant courses provide students with the practical capability, theoretical grasp of law, and the technical competence required to carry out paralegal work in today's world of complex legal issues where a high degree of proficiency in law is essential. There are two degree options offered by this program: the Associate in Applied Science, and the Bachelor of Science degree, both being approved by the American Bar Association, and both providing, not only a range of specialty legal courses, but also a solid background of liberal general education.

Our graduates find employment in many different types of legal department, including those of local, state and federal government agencies, corporations, banks and insurance companies, and also in agencies providing legal provision for the poor and in law offices and courts.

The American Bar Association defines a paralegal or legal assistant in general terms as being qualified by education, training or work experience and they are employed by a government agency, corporation, law office or lawyer or any other entity and who performs substantive work that would normally be carried out by an attorney.

Situated in the center of Brooklyn's legal community, City Tech is within walking distance of the main law offices and the federal and state courtrooms.
