The Paralegal Studies Certificate Program at the Justice Center was approved by the American Bar Association (ABA) 20 years ago. Since 1992, paralegal studies certificates have been awarded to several hundred individuals. The paralegal studies programs at UAA and UAF are the only ABA-approved programs in Alaska.
The mission of the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Paralegals is to improve the American system of justice by establishing ABA standards for the education of paralegals and by promoting attorneys’ professional, effective and ethical utilization of paralegals.
UAA Paralegal graduates can be found working in law firms, state and federal agencies, corporate legal departments, the courts, Native corporations and the private business sector, contributing to the justice system on the local, state and federal levels.
