Bachelor of Paralegal Studies

If you are looking for a career that offers prestige and excitement, one in which you can positively affect the lives of others, then consider a career as a paralegal. Supervised by an attorney, paralegals apply knowledge of law and legal procedures to assist attorneys, clients, and business organizations by performing such tasks as conducting legal research; drafting legal documents; interviewing clients and witnesses; and assisting attorneys in depositions, hearings, and trials.

The Paralegal Studies program at The University of Mississippi prepares students for this fast-paced and rapidly growing career field, honing the skills and attributes employers are looking for. The program also serves as a firm foundation for those students who plan to attend law school.
