Are you looking for a career with great prospects? The AAS in paralegal studies is designed to teach you how to be a legal assistant. A legal assistant is, in the words of the American Bar Association, a person, “who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work, for which a lawyer is responsible.” In other words, a legal assistant is a non-lawyer legal professional. Employers prefer to hire applicants who have completed a formal paralegal training program.
