Legal ethics, the U.S. court systems, procedure in criminal and civil courts, legal research and terminology, and legal document preparation are all cornerstones of the programs offered by paralegal schools in Georgia. Being a paralegal means that you will be very active in the law office where you work. Your duties may include seeing clients, drafting documents, doing research, conducting interviews, and assisting the attorney during court. Therefore, the subjects mentioned above form only a small part of the curriculum. Many types of law are also discussed, from constitutional law to real estate. Voluntary certification is a popular way to verify your credentials, and the Association of Legal Assistants and Paralegals (NALA) offers Certified Paralegal and Advanced Certified Paralegal designations.
