Paralegal Studies


While lawyers assume overall responsibility for their legal work, they often request assistance from paralegals. Paralegals and legal assistants may be asked to conduct research, prepare reports or help lawyers prepare for legal proceedings and business meetings. Paralegals and legal assistants work in various organizations, including private law firms, corporations and government offices.


Employment of paralegals and legal assistants is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2011 through 2018.1

The Paralegal Studies program in the School of Criminal Justice at ITT Technical Institute is designed to help students develop knowledge and skills that they can use to pursue entry-level positions as paralegals or legal assistants. Areas of study include ethics, legal research and writing, law office technology and specific areas of the law, such as criminal law and contract law and litigation, among others. The program is also intended to help students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Graduates of the program may pursue careers beginning with a variety of entry-level positions such as corporate paralegal, real estate paralegal, contracts administrator and legal assistant.
