The Paralegal Technology curriculum prepares individuals to work under the supervision of attorneys by performing routine legal tasks and assisting with substantive legal work. A paralegal may not practice law, give legal advice, or represent clients in a court of law.
Graduates are trained to assist attorneys in probate work, investigations, public records search, drafting and filing legal documents, research, and office management. Employment opportunities are available in private law firms, governmental agencies, banks, insurance agencies, and other business organizations.
The Paralegal Technology degree curriculum is designed for students who have a high school diploma or equivalent before entering the program. A diploma curriculum is available for students who may have previous work experience. The degree and diploma programs are recognized by the North Carolina State Bar as qualified paralegal studies programs for purposes of certification. All students are required to take at least 10 semester hours of legal classes in a traditional seated instructional format from JCC.
