Legal Studies

ADULTCLASS2

Fascinated by questions of law? Legal Studies courses prepare you to be a paraprofessional assisting lawyers in their legal work. Paralegals aid lawyers by completing research, conducting investigations, and keeping records. The schedule of courses typically accommodates the students who work full or part-time, may have family responsibilities, and want to attend school on a full or part-time basis. Faulkner’s Montgomery main campus Legal Studies program is an ABA-approved program* that is offered by synchronous technology to the Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile campuses as well.

Please refer to the Legal Studies website for our Goals and Mission and transfer policy.

*Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
