Paralegal Technology (A25380)

The Paralegal Technology curriculum prepares individuals to work under the supervision of attorneys by performing routine legal tasks and assisting with substantive legal work. A paralegal/legal assistant may not practice law, give legal advice, or represent clients in a court of law.

Course work includes substantive and procedural legal knowledge in the areas of civil litigation, legal research and writing, real estate, family law, wills, estates, trusts, and commercial law. Required courses also include subjects such as English, mathematics, and computer utilization.

Graduates are trained to assist attorneys in probate work, investigations, public records search, drafting and filing legal documents, research, and office management. Employment opportunities are available in private law firms, governmental agencies, banks, insurance agencies, and other business organizations.

The Paralegal Technology program at FTCC is accredited by the American Bar Association. In addition to the degree program, Paralegal Technology offers a diploma program for those students who have already earned a Bachelors degree.

Although classes are available in the classroom, online, and blended, the majority of the classes in this program are in the classroom. To view course descriptions, please click here. Paralegal Technology courses have a course prefix of LEX.
