Legal Administrative Assistance



Every profession has its own lingo, and law is no different. Some legal terms, such as misdemeanor, have only legal meanings. Other words are used in everyday speech but have a special legal meaning as well. For example, the term with prejudice refers not to bigotry but to a legal case that cannot be reopened or re-filed.

As a student of legal administrative assistance, you’ll learn the legal meanings of everything from acquittal to zoning. Your classes will also cover such topics as law office management and procedures, legal research, record-keeping, and legal software.
