Paralegal Program

Drop Shadow

A quality paralegal education is a key factor in finding a job in the legal profession and establishing a career in law. Known as paralegals, legal assistants, or lawyers assistants, graduates of the University of San Diego Paralegal Program are prepared to assist in the effective delivery of legal services to both the public and private sector of our society. Graduates are prepared to work in law firms, banks, corporations and government agencies.

Approved by the American Bar Association (ABA), the program offers day and evening classes, employment assistance, financial aid and internship opportunities. Classes cover topics such as legal research, intellectual property, civil and business litigation, contracts, real estate, bankruptcy and criminal law.
