Legal Assistant/Paralegal. 220302


This American Bar Association-approved Paralegal Studies Program is designed to prepare graduates to work as professional assistants under the supervision of attorneys.  All Paralegal Studies students receive training in civil procedure, contracts, real property, legal research and writing, drafting of documents, litigation support, law office systems and management, and use of computers in the legal environment. Students will take at least ten semester credits, or the equivalent, of legal specialty courses through traditional classroom instruction.  Upon satisfactory completion of the Program requirements, including a grade of “C” or better in all Paralegal courses, graduates are eligible to apply for the examination given by the National Association of Legal Assistants, Inc. to be Certified Legal Assistants (CLA), or the National Association of Legal Professionals to earn the Professional Paralegal (PP) credential. Tulsa Community College is a member of the American Association for Paralegal Education.

UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF LAW: The paralegal may be asked to accomplish a variety of duties as part of his or her job. However, paralegals are prohibited from offering legal advice and arguing cases in court; and Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law. Paralegals either work with attorneys who assume professional responsibility for the final work product or in areas where ‘lay’ individuals are explicitly authorized by statute or regulation to assume certain law-related responsibilities.
