Paralegal Studies

Fullerton College’s ABA-approved Paralegal Studies Program provides the education and skills necessary for graduates to work under the supervision of an attorney as a critical member of the legal support team in all areas of law.  Our program aids students in finding employment in this ever-growing, fast-paced, and challenging field. According to Robert Half Legal Recruiters, “Highly sought-after legal professionals are capable of receiving multiple job offers, counteroffers and even signing bonuses.”  While the program does not prepare the student for the practice of law, many graduates have gone on to law school and have commented that completion of the program made the intensive law school curriculum easier to understand. The department awards both an Associate in Science degree and a certificate.
