This Program is Perfect For...
...UCSB upper-division students and graduates as well as professionals wanting to jump start or advance their career in the legal and paralegal workspace. They don't have to be working for law firms. California law defines a “Paralegal” as a person who either contracts with or is employed by an attorney, law firm, corporation, governmental agency, or other entity and who performs substantial legal work under the direction and supervision of an attorney. Paralegals typically support attorneys in litigation, perform legal research, analyze legal documents and represent clients before a state or federal administrative agency if that representation is permitted. (Note that paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law.)
