SPC now offers the only public baccalaureate program in Paralegal Studies in Florida approved by the American Bar Association.

Baccalaureate Certificate Program

SPC's baccalaureate certificate program is designed to add paralegal skills and knowledge to a college graduate's existing excellent critical thinking, communication and computer skills. This program option, approved by the American Bar Association, includes a review course to prepare a certificate holder to sit for the Certified Legal Assistant/Certified Paralegal Examination administered by the National Association of Legal Assistants.

Paralegals are not licensed attorneys. A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.
