"The small class sizes, internship opportunities, and hands-on teaching methods were just a few of the reasons I knew the paralegal program at LC State was the right path for me. With the guidance and support of staff, I graduated from LC State with two years of legal office experience under my belt – certainly not something every college student can say.” - Cheyane M.
