Criminal Law

About the Class

Working in the area of criminal law is entirely different than working as a paralegal in other areas such as civil litigation, corporate law, or contracts. In criminal work, it is not only property or money at stake. It is a defendant’s freedom. Whether working for a defense attorney or a government entity, the paralegal can be part of the process that requires that accused individuals be given a fair trial. Paralegals today conduct interviews, perform research, help to prepare documents for the trial, and many other crucial duties on behalf of the supervising attorney.

As a paralegal, you may be asked to interview witnesses, prepare deposition questions for the attorney, sift through discovery disclosed by the prosecution, research relevant legal issues specific to each case, prepare evidence for presentation at trial, and prepare legal documents for filing with the court on behalf of the attorney.
