Legal studies schools in Idaho offer students training programs in preparation for careers as paralegals and legal assistants. Programs are typically flexible as the majority of students work during the day. Paralegal classes include courses such as law office management, criminal and civil court procedures, legal report writing, legal research and writing, and client interaction. Paralegals and legal assistants typically work under the supervision of an attorney at a private law firm. They do many of the same activities as attorneys but are prohibited from giving legal advice, presenting in court and billing people for their services. Besides working for private law offices, paralegals work in corporate law departments and different levels of government.
