An Exciting Career in the Legal Profession
You do not have to go to law school to have a career in the legal profession. With the paralegal program, you will gain the knowledge and skills you need as a paralegal. You will work directly with attorneys in the delivery of legal services and in performing other important legal work. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects "rapid employment growth" in the paralegal field. Job opportunities are available in law firms, corporations, government offices, courts, financial institutions, title companies, and community legal services.
The Paralegal Program at Sinclair Community College is an ABA approved program that provides a practical and interactive learning environment that prepares ethical, competent paralegals with the analytical, communication and technical skills necessary to excel in a diverse legal environment. Completion of this program does not qualify a graduate to practice law.
If this sounds exciting to you, please take a moment to view a 60-second video of paralegals in action! There's even a more in-depth 8-minute paralegal video for you to learn even more about this exciting program.
Students must take at least ten semester credit hours or the equivalent of legal specialty courses through traditional classroom instruction per ABA Guidelines.
Completion of the Paralegal Program does not authorize a graduate to practice law as an attorney.
