Law & Paralegal

The field of law is exciting and an ever-evolving area to work in, and the study of the legal system can lead to numerous exciting career opportunities.  From lawyers to teachers and support personnel, a degree in Law can open numerous doors that can lead to an enriching and fulfilling career.

Educational requirements depend on the career path students wish to take.  Paralegals can qualify and find good jobs with as little as an Associate's degree, but those interested in becoming lawyers, consultants or administrators will need to earn a Master's degree or higher.

Paralegals will encounter a wide range of tasks throughout their careers, much of which relies heavily on research and organization.  Most schools offer degrees that emphasize research and analytical elements as well as an introduction to the legal system and basic legal terms and concepts.

The study of law involves understanding the laws as well as host of other aspects, including learning about procedures, contracts, legal writing, criminal law and the constitution.  Undergraduates looking to continue through the graduate level benefit from a law degree because it helps them to focus on the specialties they wish to concentrate on.

For paralegals, working for a legal team can be an exciting and rewarding career choice, and a law degree can improve their bargaining power when looking for a good job with a decent salary.  Even though a two year degree is a minimum requirement for many positions, it is much more attractive to hold a four year degree.

Projected growth for attorneys and judges is not as high as it is for paralegals and support staff, however they are consistent and stable.  Some of the more growth oriented areas in the legal profession are international business and real estate law.  But, the possibilities are endless depending on individual student's overall goals and interests.
