ASSOCIATE IN SPECIALIZED BUSINESS DEGREE:

PARALEGAL

 

The Paralegal Program provides critical thinking in the skills necessary to assist an attorney and manage a legal office. A wide variety of career opportunities is available when you decide to enter one of today's fastest growing occupations. A paralegal will do research, analyze information, and prepare written reports to assist the attorney. Paralegals may also interview witnesses, obtain affidavits, and assist the attorney during the trial. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to apply their skills in private law firms, government agencies, real estate and insurance firms, banks, and corporate law departments.


Computer research, course work in a variety of legal specialties, and practical legal skills are among the highlights of this program. Students enrolled in the Paralegal program during the day should be aware that they will be required to attend in the evening to complete the Legal Research course. This is because the county libraries that are visited and utilized during the course are only open to classes during the evening hours. In addition, it may be necessary for students to take other courses with a PLS designation in the evening as well.

[LSB testimonials]

I was interested in LSB because it was a small school with flexible schedules so I could tend to my family's needs. I am soon to graduate and just completed my externship at a Dermatologist's office where I have accepted a position as a Medical Assistant. I am so happy with what I learned at LSB, and though it was challenging, it was well worth it.

LSB provides a well-rounded program with diversity in the courses offered. I've been introduced to many areas within the Legal field that I'll encounter when job searching. The Instructors offer excellent expertise and use their own personal industry examples to help students learn. A mock trial in Criminal Law class allowed students to participate in a trial officiated by a Professional Judge. It's been a life changing experience and has opened my eyes to a different world of learning and an understanding of the need for Community legal aid.
