What will I learn?

Earn a Degree in Paralegal Studies!

The program offers associate and bachelor's degrees, and a post-baccalaureate certificate. The certificate can be completed in one year of full-time study.
Strong full-time graduate placement rates in the top law firms, corporations, and courts in the Metro area result from the required internship course.
Approved by the American Bar Association since 1984, the program has an outstanding reputation in the legal community.
Flexible course schedule with 9 semester hours of legal specialty courses required to be taught in the traditional classroom format.
Courses are taught by attorneys and paralegals with experience in the legal specialties they teach.
Bachelor's degree completion programs are offered at the Macomb University Center in Clinton Township, Michigan and Henry Ford College in Dearborn, Michigan.

The goals and objectives of the Paralegal Studies Program are to produce extremely competent and well-rounded individuals who will be able to assist an attorney in various areas of the law. The program teaches practical paralegal skills in conjunction with a liberal arts education. This allows graduates to serve a modern, multicultural society with a valuable skill. This also includes educating B.S.N credentialed nurses to become nurse paralegals.

The challenging program is an excellent undergraduate pre-law major with legal research and writing courses that prepare students very well for the first year of law school. Completion of the degree or certificate requirements does not authorize the graduate to practice law as an attorney, or provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
