Associate of Science - Legal Studies (64 credits)
Davenport University’s American Bar Association (ABA) approved Associate of Science in Legal Studies program prepares students to work in a law firms, corporations, government agency, the judiciary, non-profits and other law-related settings, through studies that focus on effective communication skills, critical thinking, litigation procedures, computer applications for the law offices, ethics and various legal specialties.
The student will benefit from classes that combine legal theory with a practical focus and will receive hands-on experience performing the types of tasks typically performed by paralegals. Although paralegals play a key role in providing legal services to clients, only attorneys may accept cases, give legal advice, represent clients in court or provide other direct legal services to clients.
