Part-Time Teaching Opportunities

We offer both an associate degree and a certificate of completion in Paralegal Studies.  We are always interested in hearing from persons interested in serving as a part time instructor in the program. Because of the number of requests we receive from those interested in instructing, we cannot always respond to inquiries directly. Therefore, we have created this “e-info” sheet for your convenience. It should answer most of your questions.
