Here are the objectives for the Fullerton College Paralegal Studies Program;


The Fullerton College's Paralegal Studies Program approved by

the American Bar Association (ABA) offers an Associate in Science

Degree and a Certificate to qualified students. The goal of

the program is to educate students to become paralegals who

perform effectively in a variety of legal settings and adapt to

changes in the ever-evolving field of law. This program prepares

the student for a career as a paralegal working under the supervision

of an attorney in either the public or private sector.

The objectives of the program are as follows:

* To maintain a program that is dedicated to quality education

and occupational competency for the paralegal student in

the field of law;

* To ensure that students receive specific instruction and training

in the skills necessary to succeed in any legal environment;

* To offer an ever-expanding curriculum which provides not

only a broad understanding of the substantive law, but

demonstrates and teaches the practical application of this

knowledge in today's legal environment;

* To stress the importance of upholding the general principles

of ethics, professional responsibility, and the prohibitions

against the unauthorized practice of law;

* To periodically review and revise the curriculum in response

to the recommendations of the Fullerton College Paralegal

Studies' Advisory Committee, the demands of the legal community

and the American Bar Association, as well as statutory

provisions contained within California's Business and

Professions Code;

* To provide the student with the opportunity to apply the skills

and knowledge taught in the program by offering the student

the ability to enroll and participate in an internship, thereby

providing the student with a modicum of legal experience

before entering the job market.

Hope this is of some use.
