Paralegal
 

Bringing Order to the Legal World.

Paralegals increase the efficiency of a legal firm by performing various challenging legal tasks under the supervision of a licensed attorney. Paralegals often conduct witness interviews, draft legal documents, perform legal research, and communicate directly with clients. Paralegals are also trained to assist lawyers as they prepare for hearings, conduct trials, and negotiate settlements. To excel in the legal field, paralegals need to have an eye for detail, be skilled organizers, and be able to work well on a team. During the 16-month Associate of Applied Science degree program at King's College, you can learn important skills and will study many legal content areas including:

  • Criminal, Family and Tort Law
  • Civil Litigation Procedures
  • Real Estate Transactions
  • Legal Ethics

The 16-month program is designed so you spend the majority of your time learning skills directly related to your career in the legal world. You may also spend 8 weeks in an externship where you can practice what you’ve learned and experience working in a legal setting.

PROGRAM INFORMATION

 

Catalog

Potential applicants may find the following information at  www.kingscollegecharlotte.edu/catalog.pdf: institutional accreditation; contact information for accrediting agencies and state licensing/approval agencies; admissions policies and practices; policies on transfer of credits to and from the institution; policies and processes for withdrawal and for refunds of tuition/fees; and additional consumer information.

 

Credit Transfer From Another School

Transcripts of work completed at other colleges may be submitted to the Chief Academic Officer for review. Transcripts should be submitted during the first term of a student’s program. Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Chief Academic Officer to determine if the course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required at King’s College. If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for courses completed at other accredited colleges provided the grades received for the courses were ”C” or better. Courses completed at other Bradford schools will be treated the same as courses taken at King’s College. 

Because programs at King’s College are specially tailored to career preparation, course credits from other postsecondary schools may not be transferable. 

Credit is not granted for advanced placement or experiential learning. One exception is credit for military training that has been evaluated and recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). King’s College may award credit based on these recommendations when the credit is for courses similar in nature, content, and level to that required at the college. Students seeking credit for military training should provide a transcript from the American Council on Education for evaluation. Credit will be treated as transfer credit and will count toward graduation. 

 

Credit Transfer to Another School

The acceptance of credits is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits. Because programs at King’s College are designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for courses taken at King’s College are not transferable to other institutions. Neither King’s College nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit. 

A student who is interested in attempting to transfer credits to another institution should contact the Chief Academic Officer at King’s College. King’s College will supply the necessary documentation that may aid the student in receiving credits for the completed course work provided the student does not owe the school money, is not delinquent or in default on a student loan, or does not owe a refund on any federal or state student financial aid program.
