1 Summary of Proposed Changes to Paralegal Studies Program Program Revision to Associate in Applied Science degree program: eliminate Lab Science as a requirement and change Economics requirement to ECO 105, 201 or 202 (see proposed revised program descriptions). Rationale for change: The Paralegal Studies AAS degree program currently requires 67 credits. The elimination of the Lab Science requirement will reduce the number of credits required for graduation to 63 credits. This obviously will make it easier for students to complete the A.A.S. program in 2 years. The lab science course was eliminated because although valuable for the goal of producing a well-rounded, well-informed student, it was less relevant than the other general education courses to the program goal of preparing students for careers as paralegals. The Economics requirement for this program was originally ECO 105, which has not been offered in many semesters. Allowing students to take ECO 201 or 202 increases the student s flexibility for scheduling. The program as revised will still satisfy the General Education requirements for the A.A.S. degree (see attached Program Review Grid). 2. Program Revision to Associate in Applied Science and Certificate of Achievement programs: change prerequisite requirements for several courses to co-requisites (see proposed revised program descriptions). Rationale for change: The primary reason for this change is to allow students to complete the program more quickly, and to ease scheduling difficulties for working students, who can take courses only if they are offered in the evening. The Certificate of Achievement program may be completed in one year only if LGL 101 may be taken as a co-requisite, rather than as a prerequisite, for all other LGL courses. The Associate in Applied Science degree is much easier to complete in two years if LGL 101 is taken as a corequisite, rather than as a prerequisite, for several LGL courses in the first semester. 3. Course Revision to LGL 215 (formerly Law Office Management, to be renamed Law Office Technology). Change in course description, with greater emphasis on technology applications. Rationale for change: this change reflects a growing trend in the paralegal field towards greater reliance on computer technology in all aspects of law practice. This change also reflects the way the course has actually been taught in the computer lab.
