Legal Studies includes coursework dealing with legal ideas, legal institutions, and the legal process. Depending upon the program selected, graduates may be seeking advanced education to become a lawyer or seek employment in law, business, or government offices working under the supervision of a lawyer. In either case, the law office provides an intellectually stimulating, challenging, and fast-paced work environment.
Those pursuing education in legal studies need to have or develop strong skills in reading, writing, oral communication, and critical thinking as well as related skills such as research and problem solving. It is also helpful to be detail oriented. Paralegals are often members of a legal team working with and for the client. The student should possess strong technological and computer skills.
