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 curriculum, finding it easier to understand. The program offers both an Associate in Science degree and a Certificate.

PLEASE NOTEThe Fullerton College ABA-approved Paralegal Studies Program does not prepare students for law school or the practice of law. Under California’s Business and Professions Code, Section 6450 (et seq.), a paralegal may not market his or her services to the public, but must work under the direct supervision of an attorney licensed to practice law.
