Are you considering a career as a paralegal, legal assistant, or law office secretary? A certificate or associate’s degree from one of the legal studies schools in Maine can help you attain that goal. While a certificate’s courses may not be transferable to a degree program, it does have the advantage of being a relatively fast way to start a new career. An associate’s degree covers the same basic instruction as a certificate course, with more detail being given to various points of legal studies. Classes include law and legal ethics, business English, legal research and writing, wills, trusts, real estate, probate, government, office procedures, the U.S. court system, and many other topics.
