Legal studies schools in Georgia offer paralegal and legal assistant two-year associate’s degrees. Paralegal programs are usually offered through a community college. The classes are usually offered at night or online because the majority of students have full or part-time jobs. The major courses vary depending on institution but can include courses such as law office management, legal terminology, civil and criminal court procedures, legal research and writing and litigation. Paralegals do many of the same duties that attorneys do except for providing legal advice, charging for their services and presenting in court. According to employment experts paralegal careers are expected to be the fastest growing in the country.
