A paralegal or legal assistant is a person — qualified through education, training or work experience — who is employed by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity. The paralegal performs specifically delegated, substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible. Paralegals must not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law.

The MCC Paralegal Program has the distinction of being approved by The American Bar Association since 1984. It is primarily an evening program of study, offering legal courses during the academic year. Many students work full-time while attending classes at night.
