Students interested in working as paralegals, legal assistants, court personnel, or in occupations that require a strong legal background should consider this program. Ferris graduates have been very successful in using this degree as a background for a variety of occupations and as preparation for law school.

Paralegals assist attorneys in the delivery of legal services. Although they are not lawyers and may not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law, paralegals have the knowledge and expertise to perform work of a legal nature under the supervision of an attorney.

The program is designed to allow the student to complete a baccalaureate degree with an additional two years of study.
