Why a Paralegal Studies Major?

The Paralegal Profession holds jobs for the future.

The United States Department of Labor has reported in its 2017 Occupational Outlook Handbook, that: " Employment of paralegals and legal assistants is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Formally trained paralegals with strong computer and database management skills should have the best job prospects. This occupation attracts many applicants, and competition for jobs will be strong. Experienced, formally trained paralegals with strong computer and database management skills should have the best job prospects."
