Someone who enjoys conducting research, solving problems, and communicating the results has good potential as a paralegal. Paralegals are employed by private law firms, financial institutions, courts, prosecutors' offices, legal aid societies, public defenders' programs and corporate law offices.

Students can take classes at Clark State concurrently with the Sinclair paralegal courses if they wish to complete the degree within a two-year time frame, or they can complete the nonparalegal courses at Clark State first and then transfer to Sinclair to complete the program. Students are cautioned that once they begin the paralegal courses at Sinclair, it will still take two years to sequence through the paralegal courses.
