The Paralegal program at Ivy Tech is taught by highly qualified and experienced faculty. Students will benefit from the knowledge and years of experience our faculty, who are practicing attorneys and judges, bring to the classroom. Our students also have the opportunity to use a mock courtroom and host the Indiana Court of Appeals for oral arguments.
The overall Program goal is to give the students the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful as entry level paralegals, working under the supervision of lawyers, or successful transfer to a four-year institution. Paralegals are not licensed attorneys and are not able to render legal advice.
Our graduates are currently working in the court system, at private law firms as paralegals or legal assistants. Many of our graduates are working as court staff or in legal departments of business and corporations. Some of our graduates have even chosen to transfer to four-year institutions to earn a bachelor's degree and then attend law school.
Ivy Tech has several transfer partners for the Paralegal Studies associate degree, including Ball State University, Calumet College of St. Joseph, College of Mount St. Joseph, and Saint Mary of the Woods College. Talk to your transfer advocate for more information about transfer opportunities!
