National American University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies. Paralegals, sometimes called legal assistants, may be employed in law firms; corporate legal departments; local, state, and federal government offices; bank and trust offices; and other offices requiring analytical and communication skills. Under the supervision of an attorney, a paralegal may interview clients and witnesses; draft court pleadings and other legal documents; perform legal research; research medical, police, and other records; attend hearings; assist in trial preparations; and assist at trial. A paralegal may not give legal advice, represent a client in court, or set fees. Students receive their paralegal education from experienced attorneys. Students also receive valuable experience during their internships in law firms and other law-related offices.
