The Paralegal Department offers a comprehensive four-year program approved by the American Bar Association, a distinction held by only 74 bachelor degrees in the nation and two public universities in Minnesota. The curriculum familiarizes students with all aspects of the paralegal field, including a deep emphasis in writing and research, and specific courses of study in elder law and probate, litigation and commercial law. Small courses offer the opportunity to work closely with well-educated and engaged faculty, many of whom are active in law practices outside of the classroom.
Students have many opportunities for great professional development through student organizations such as the Minnesota State Paralegal Association Moorhead, the Red River Valley Paralegal Association and Lambda Epsilon Chi, the national honor society for paralegal students, a wealth of law library resources and through regular guest speakers who are active professionals in the field. The required internship component is a major attribute of the program – students have interned with more than 160 law firms in 12 states – providing valuable, hands-on experience and professional networking contacts. The comprehensive curriculum combined with professional enrichment and hands-on experience prepares students to excel in law school or a paralegal career.
