Associate of Science in Paralegal Studies

Clayton State University
Degree Level Associate
Total Credit Hours 60

Program Description

Most of our students are interested in working as paralegals or going to law school. Our A.S. in Paralegal Studies focuses on practical paralegal skills, legal terminology, legal research and writing, and substantive law courses similar to those one would take during the first year of law school. There is an additional emphasis on general education for A.S. students who do not already possess a degree and who do not want to seek a four-year degree at this time.

Our Legal Studies and Paralegal Studies Programs are part of an elite group of programs in Georgia that is approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). This approval signifies a high degree of quality in our curriculum and in our student resources. Our instructors are all attorneys with combined teaching experience of over 50 years. Our curriculum has been carefully developed to provide students with the hands-on training they will need to be successful in the legal field. Please note that paralegals and other non-lawyers may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
