Paralegal Associate in Applied Science Degree Program in New York


The AAS in Paralegal Studies Program offers a well-rounded educational experience that concentrates on the practical skills necessary to become a successful paralegal with a solid liberal arts foundation. It includes well established core legal and paralegal skills as well as substantive topics of law, including torts and criminal law.

Graduates will be equipped to enter the job market as paralegals in small, mid-sized and large law firms, government, private and public agencies. Upon completion of the program graduates will be able to draft legal documents as well as conduct legal research both manually and through computer based research programs. Students will be exposed of legal practitioners with backgrounds in criminal, civil and federal practice. The structure of the curriculum and the related learning objectives will be consistent with those of the American Bar Association.

An essential component of the Paralegal program is the externship experience provided to the students in their last semester. Students will have first hand experience in courts, notably the Supreme, Civil, Family, Surrogate, Appeals, and Federal Courts. Additional sites are the New York City Law Department, the Police Department and offices of solo practitioners. Externship provides the student with an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and skills learned in course work at ASA College. Therefore, we work with students to ensure that when they accept their first paralegal position, they are more than ready to face and conquer the challenges attendant to being members of the paralegal profession.
