The Rasmussen College Paralegal Associate's degree will help you acquire the skills needed to rise above the competition and start a career in the legal field. Whether you earn your degree online, on campus, or a combination of both, our curriculum leverages published recommendations from the American Bar Association (ABA), the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA), and others. It also includes substantial use of Westlaw and Lexis Nexis, the most well-known legal research services available. Our expert instructors will prepare you to take the National Certified Legal Assistant/Paralegal Examination (CLA/CP Exam) when you graduate, so you can become a certified paralegal. Rasmussen College will even cover the application fee for you. You can also get hands-on experience and start building your network by participating in our internship program, working at a law firm or corporate legal department.
