What can you do with a degree from one of the accredited legal studies schools in Alabama listed on this page? An associate’s or bachelor’s degree program can be a good way to introduce you to the field of law without committing yourself to a specialty or profession. For example, some bachelor’s degree graduates go on to study at law schools and become attorneys; others pursue careers as paralegals, law clerks, or law librarians. Whatever you choose, a degree in legal studies will serve both as practical training and as instruction into many areas of the law, including business law, family law, tort, real estate, and estate and probate laws. Practical skills include legal research and writing, communication, public speaking, and composition.
