This program is designed for students who already have a bachelor's degree with at least 18 credits in Liberal Arts courses. You will gain the foundation for a paralegal career in a law office, government agency, private organization or corporation. The program is approved by the American Bar Association.
Classes are offered face to face at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus. Selected courses are offered at the outlying campuses via interactive television. Online classes are available; at least 10 credits of legal specialty (PLEGAL) courses must be taken via face-to-face instruction.
Career Outlook: Typical job duties include conducting client interviews, obtaining case information, performing legal research, preparing and filing legal documents, and providing general assistance to attorneys. Paralegals are required to work under the supervision of an attorney to avoid the unauthorized practice of law.
