community. The program has been approved by the American Bar

through training in research, writing, listening, and speaking skills;
•        Make each student a competent legal professional by
providing him/her with both theory and practical knowledge and
training; and
•        Provide each student with a foundation in ethics and
professional responsibility that will enable him/her to recognize
values and perform legal services in an ethical manner.
PCC’s Paralegal Studies program is approved by the American Bar Association, signifying that they have met standards
