Are you ready for a career that includes both law and order?

As a legal administrative assistant, you’ll be an integral part of the legal team, using your superior skills and abilities in technology, administration, and research—as well as your understanding of legal procedures—to help the firm run professionally and smoothly.

If you are detail oriented, a good writer who is also a stickler for grammar, and someone who thrives on keeping things organized (including your time and other’s), you will thrive in this career.

In this one-year accelerated program, you’ll learn all the basic administrative duties, plus get a solid grounding in civil litigation, family law, corporate law, real estate law, and estate law.

On the job training rounds out your skill sets, so you’ll be ready to hit the ground running at your first real job.
