Are you interested in studying law, but not sure that you want to join the bar? While a bachelor’s degree from legal studies schools in New Jersey can be used for the foundations of a law degree, it can also work as a paralegal’s education. Law librarians and legal assistants also use the skills in this degree. If dedicating four years of your life to a course of study seems daunting, perhaps an associate’s degree or a diploma is a more reachable goal. These cover the basics of the law profession, including instruction in several areas of law as well as communication, legal research and writing, American government, and public speaking.
