Center For Advanced Legal Studies
Houston, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)

Our History and Mission - Paralegal Education

The Center is ABA Approved and Accredited.

We are a paralegal college that has specialized exclusively in the education of paralegals since opening our doors in 1987. Due to the ability of our graduates, and the reputation of our faculty and staff, the legal community recognizes the Center as a leader in paralegal education.

In spite of the down-turn in the US economy, the paralegal profession is projected to continue to grow. As other businesses and professions fold, the legal profession expands, and so does the need for well-trained paralegals.

We have built our reputation on a firm foundation made up of the highest educational and legal authorities in the nation. Because of this, we can assure our students, graduates, and their employers that the paralegal training provided at the Center For Advanced Legal Studies meets and exceeds the requirements of the profession.

The Paralegal Profession

The paralegal profession has grown tremendously since its introduction in the 1960s. Now there are more than 238,000 paralegals working in the United States.1 Additionally, paralegal jobs are projected to ‘grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2016’, equating to a growth rate of 22% or more.

What is a Paralegal
The paralegal job description is as wide and varied as there are attorneys, corporations, government agencies, and other entities that employ them. Perhaps this is a testament to their value and versatility. However, legal organizations and associations have established concise definitions to help clarify and standardize the paralegal profession and the paralegal’s role.

According to the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc.,

A Paralegal is a person, qualified through education, training or work experience to perform substantive legal work that requires knowledge of legal concepts and is customarily, but not exclusively, performed by a lawyer. This person may be retained or employed by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity or may be authorized by administrative, statutory or court authority to perform this work. Substantive shall mean work requiring recognition, evaluation, organization, analysis, and communication of relevant facts and legal concepts.2

And according to the American Bar Association,

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.3
As is evident from the above definitions, education is an important, if not the most important, component determining the qualifications of a paralegal. The Center designs its paralegal programs and its curricula to ensure its graduates not only meet, but exceed, the educational requirements necessary for a successful and rewarding paralegal career.

The Center For Advanced Legal Studies Location

Center For Advanced Legal Studies' campus is located in Houston - a vibrant, multi-cultural city with resilience that makes it a stand-out location for the legal industry.

As a long-standing educational institution within this city, the Center has developed a facility in a central location with convenient access to outlying residential areas as well as to the widespread population of attorneys and employers of paralegals.
