NORMAN – Those interested in a paralegal career are invited to a free orientation seminar sponsored by the University of Oklahoma Department of Legal Assistant Education 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at the OU Law Center, 300 Timberdell Road in Norman.
OU legal assistant program instructors and graduates and representatives of professional paralegal organizations will discuss the legal assistant education program and paralegal profession.

OU is enrolling students for Fall 2011 classes, including Trial Techniques, Introduction to Law, Domestic Relations, Professional Ethics, Legal Analysis, Practice in the Federal Court Seminar, Law Practice Management, Legal Research and Wills and Trusts. The courses are designed to train individuals as paralegals for careers in private, corporate and government law-related activities. Classes are offered on Saturdays at the OU Law Center in order to allow students to continue working while studying for their certificate.
“We have graduated more than 600 students since our program began,” said David A. Poarch, director of the department and assistant dean of the OU College of Law. “Economic surveys indicate that the demand for paralegals will continue to increase. Many of our students already work in the legal field and want more training. Others are seeking to begin new careers in law.”
