What are Paralegal Studies?
While lawyers assume ultimate responsibility for legal work, they often delegate many of their tasks to paralegals. Another very important task for paralegals is helping lawyers prepare for closings, hearings, trials and corporate meetings. Paralegals investigate the facts of cases and ensure that all relevant information is considered.
See our Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information.
