CURRICULUM GUIDE

Legal Office Administration
Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0207  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

The Legal Office Administration Program prepares students to work as a legal
secretary in law offices, courts, public agencies, and in legal departments of
larger businesses and organizations. The Legal Office Administration Associate
in Business degree builds on the course work provided in the Certificate of
Achievement and will enhance a student's employment opportunities in this
field. Legal secretaries are an important part of a legal team and typically
report to one or more attorneys. Legal secretaries are skilled in the use of
computers and the preparation of legal documents. Not all courses in this
program transfer to all colleges. Students planning to transfer should see an
academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.
