The objective of this program is to provide students with the training, and technical knowledge necessary for entry-level employment as paralegals. Graduates will be able to communicate their findings and opinions effectively, both orally and in writing, and will be able to perform manual and computerized case research. They will effectively apply legal terminology, as well as perform investigative skills necessary to assist in the drafting of such documents as contracts, mortgages, separation agreements, trust instruments, tax returns, shareholder agreements, stock option plans and employee benefit plans. Graduates will understand the paralegal?s place in the legal community, and will understand as well that, except as permitted by law, paralegals do not provide legal services directly to the public.
