¿Qué aprenderé?

The mission of the Professional Legal Studies Program is to engage students in the scholarly pursuit of the law and its practice. The Program is committed to provide students with knowledge of procedural and substantive law and a professional skill set that will prepare them for employment in a changing and competitive legal environment.

A degree in Professional Legal Studies prepares students to become part of a vital and growing profession working within their communities to pursue justice, provide social and legal services, and protect basic human rights. Graduates are employed in private law practice, court services, corporate legal departments, mortgage and title companies, legal education, government and political offices, non-profit organizations, law enforcement/corrections, real estate sales, property management, and human resources. The degree also provides unique preparation for students interested in graduate or law school. The curriculum is student-centered and employment-focused. It combines instruction in hard and soft skills, legal theory and service learning.

Program Objectives

  • To create, implement and maintain a strong, flexible program directed to the quality education of occupationally-competent paralegals;
  • To provide a paralegal education program that leads to employment of its graduates by a wide range of employers;
  • To provide paralegals with a well-rounded, balanced education founded on a beneficial mix of general education, theory, and practical courses stressing understanding and reasoning rather than rote learning of facts;
  • To support federal, Kentucky and local Rules of Procedure and general principles of ethical legal practice, professional responsibility, the prohibitions against the unauthorized practice of law by non-lawyers, and the use and supervision of paralegals by lawyers;
  • To provide an educational program that is responsive to the varied needs of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the region and contributes to the overall advancement of the legal profession;
  • To provide a program which instills respect for the legal profession and its foundation, institutions, and quest for justice; and
  • To maintain equality of opportunity in the educational program without discrimination or segregation of the grounds of race, color, religion, natural origin, gender, age, disability or economic need.
