Working as a paralegal or legal assistant requires skills and knowledge much more specialized than that of the average office assistant. Of course, legal office workers are expected to know about computer programs, filing systems, keyboarding, and other office skills. But because of the precise and detailed nature of their jobs, they must also be familiar with legal terminology, legal document preparation and drafting, writing and research skills for the legal profession, and ethics and confidentiality laws. Paralegal schools in Pennsylvania also include information on the U.S. court system and its procedures, as well as many different areas of law. Diplomas, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees are awarded.
At Kaplan University, we offer over 180 degree and certificate programs.
