Paralegal Studies

Building Your Future

 

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of paralegals will grow 28% between 2008 and 2019, which is “much faster than the average for all occupations.”

 

Daemen College offers two tracks of study that will provide you with a program that best meets your needs.

 

The Bachelor of Science Track

• For the traditional student seeking a well-rounded undergraduate education

• Providing intensive preparation in paralegal coursework (such as legal research & writing, law office technology, and specific areas of law) to provide the practical skills in demand in today’s legal environment

• Providing a strong liberal arts core curriculum to develop the skills demanded of today’s professionals (communication skills, critical thinking, etc.)

• Free electives available to develop areas of interest, such as foreign languages, business, etc

**For more information, see the BS Track curriculum 

 

The Certificate Track

 

• For the student who already has a bachelor’s degree, or is working on a bachelor’s degree in another field but would like the flexibility offered by an additional credential

• Students must complete a bachelor’s degree in some area of study to receive the certificate

• Students take classes in the same rigorous program as the students in the bachelor’s track

• The average student in the certificate program will take 25-30 credit hours of coursework in paralegal studies requirements

     “When you choose Paralegal Studies, you are choosing a profession – one that is stimulating, ever-changing, and requires a high degree of professionalism. Daemen will then help you choose the legal field that is right for you. Daemen offers courses in a wide range of legal topics, moot court, and internships that give the paralegal students practical experience.”

     “Today’s students need mentors to help them find the right job in a difficult market. With my 10 years of experience practicing law in downtown Buffalo and my 8 years of law school teaching experience, I am prepared to give Daemen paralegal students as much guidance and help as they need.”
