Paralegal | TJC


Join the ranks of legal professionals by earning an Associate of Applied Science in Paralegal Studies. Our paralegal program is designed to provide graduating students with the skills required for entry-level positions in typical Texas law firms.

You will receive comprehensive knowledge of the legal system from our expert staff. Learn how to help lawyers prepare for real estate closings or court, investigate the facts and precedents, and organize information into reports for attorneys to use.

Many of the tasks traditionally performed by attorneys are now being performed by paralegals; however, paralegals must work under the supervision of an attorney and are not allowed to give legal advice, set legal fees, represent clients, or appear in court on behalf of a client.

With our small student to faculty ratio we provide you the education, training and experience you need to enter the workforce upon graduation.
