Curriculum The SBC Paralegal Studies Program is either fast-track 3-week or advanced 6-week course of study designed to train students in specific areas of the profession most in demand and most desired by attorneys. The program can be tailored to the particular needs of the applicant. Following is the course curriculum for the Classroom-based program. The structure may vary. Essential Skills for Paralegals Fundamentals of the Profession Evidence and Investigation Legal Research and Writing Pleadings and Discovery Motion Practice The Legal Environment The Law Office Legal Ethics California Courts Federal Courts Legal Technology Extra-Judicial Processes SUBSTANTIVE LEGAL STUDIES Contract Law - A rocket-sled ride through basic Contract Law, this course introduces students to fundamental contract theory and terminology. Topics covered include contract formation, modification, breach, and remedies. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to identify key theoretical concepts and apply simple analysis to contract problems. Tort Law - Tort Law deals with a class of civil wrongs or harms to people or property. Students in this class will learn about negligence actions, intentional torts, and the process of civil litigation. Emphasis will be placed on the practical skills that paralegals need to help attorneys prepare to prosecute or defend civil matters from pre-filing through trial to posttrial motions. Family Law - Students will embark upon exploration of Family Law to: (1) understand the fundamental elements of Family Law, (2) identify core legal issues within the field, and (3) understand the duties of the paralegal in the Family and Matrimonial arena. Paralegal Classes Page 3

4 Real Property Law - This course has two main goals: to familiarize students with the basic concepts of Property Law and to introduce students to the practice of title searches and loan closings. The study of Real Property Law provides a basis for the work in a Real Estate practice. At the end of this course, successful students will be able to conduct their own title search from a home computer and be ready to understand the workings of a real estate firm Program Requirements for Successful Course Completion In order to progress from one semester to the next in the Paralegal Program, the following principles will be followed. SATISFACTORY COMPLETION OF THE CURRICULUM 1. A minimum grade of "C" (2.0) in each of the following courses (which are prerequisites for admission): Introduction to Law Paralegal Professional Studies Paralegal Ethics A student who does not achieve a minimum grade of "C" (2.0) in any of the above-listed prerequisite courses may not repeat that course more than once. 2. A minimum grade of "C" (2.0) must be achieved in each Paralegal course. Failure to achieve at least a "C" (2.0) will cause the student to be ineligible to continue with the program. 3. An overall GPA of no less than 2.0 on a 4.0 scale ("C") in all other general education courses. INCOMPLETES Students will receive a grade of I only if special circumstances prevent them from completing the class. Students must make arrangements with the instructor before semester grades are submitted and must sign a statement agreeing to complete the class requirements. All class requirements must be completed by the deadline indicated on the agreement. An "I" will be changed to an "F" if the student does not successfully complete the work by the deadline established by the instructor, which can be no later than the end of the next full semester following the grading period for which the "I" was given. The instructor is responsible for initiating a grade change when a student successfully completes the work outlined in the agreement. During the semester a student is completing the "I" contract, the student cannot re-enroll in the class, nor is the student considered currently enrolled on the basis of the "I" grade from the previous semester. Students may not withdraw from a course in which an "I" has been assigned. STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES A Paralegal student is responsible for monitoring his/her own academic progress and for seeking assistance from the course instructor when necessary. CHANGES IN THE CURRICULUM From time to time, the Paralegal curriculum requirements may be subject to changes which would result in a modification of program requirements. Students who stay continuously Paralegal Classes Page 4

5 enrolled will not be affected by such changes and will be required to meet only the program requirements in effect during the semester in which they initially enrolled in the Paralegal Program. Any student who does not re-enroll at SBC for a semester or longer will be subject, upon re-enrollment, to any curriculum or program requirement changes which may have gone into effect during the interim. Any student who is not enrolled at SBC for a semester or longer will be automatically dropped from the Paralegal Program with the exception of the summer semester. Such a student may apply for readmission and must follow the standard application procedure. UNSUCCESSFUL STUDENTS A Paralegal student who does not successfully complete any semester of the program will be ineligible to continue in the program. Unsuccessful students will be supplied with a written statement of their course deficiencies. At the initiative of the student, an end-of-course conference will be scheduled to include the student, course instructor(s), and the program director. Unsuccessful students may apply for readmission and must follow the standard application procedure. SUCCESS Successful completion of the program will entitle students to the Paralegal Postsecondary Certificate. Paralegal Classes Page 5
