A little about the major...
The primary purpose of NVCC's paralegal studies program is to educate competent and ethical paralegals. Paralegals (who are also called "legal assistants") are persons who are qualified by education, training, or work experience to perform specifically delegated legal work for which a lawyer is responsible. Paralegals are employed or retained by lawyers, law offices, corporations, governmental agencies, and other entities. The program has been approved by the American Bar Association since 1988.
