Director of Legal Assistant Education
NORMAN, OKLA. – The Department of Legal Assistant Education at the University of Oklahoma is now accepting applications for its spring semester Paralegal Certificate Program.
Legal assistants, also called paralegals, work under the supervision of lawyers and perform a variety of tasks, including legal research, drafting legal documents and interviewing clients. OU’s legal specialty courses are taught by practicing lawyers and legal assistants who bring their real-world experience into the classroom.
Courses are offered online and on Saturdays at the OU Law Center in Norman. Of the 23 legal specialty classes that must be completed, 10 credits are on campus and 13 are online. Students can complete the program within 18 months.
The Department of Legal Assistant Education was initiated by the OU Law Center in 1968, and the program was approved by the American Bar Association in 1978.
