Legal Studies in Colorado

Legal studies schools in Colorado prepare students for careers as paralegals and legal assistants. Paralegals work under the supervision of an attorney or court. They do many of the same activities as attorneys such as legal research, case preparation, case investigation, and filing reports. By law they cannot provide legal advice or bill for their services. Most legal programs are provided by community colleges and result in a two-year associate’s degree. Major courses include legal ethics, case law, legal research methods, law office administration and management, litigation, and legal writing. Most paralegals work for private law firms or are part of a corporate legal department.
