The Legal Administrative Assistant curriculum prepares students for employment in administrative support positions in an attorney's office, courthouses, or other legal facilities. Special emphasis is placed on current computer applications such as word processing, data processing, spreadsheets and desktop publishing using a personal computer ( we do not support or use Apple products). The Legal Administrative Assistant degree prepares you to learn how to communicate effectively in a legal environment, conduct legal research, and produce written legal correspondence.
Law firms rely on trained legal office assistants to handle day-to-day operations such as preparing legal correspondence, summons, motions, and subpoenas so that lawyers and paralegals can focus on preparing cases.
