Legal Assistant Education

The Department of Legal Assistant Education, initiated by the OU Law Center in 1968, reflects the growing importance of legal assistants (paralegals) in the law profession.

About the Program

Legal assistants perform a variety of crucial tasks, including legal research, drafting legal documents, and interviewing clients. Our curriculum stresses understanding and reasoning rather than rote learning of facts. Our legal specialty courses are taught by practicing lawyers and legal assistants who bring their real-world experience into the classroom.

The legal assistant certificate program is flexible and convenient, with Saturday courses and independent study options available.
