The Foundations of Paralegal Studies course is comprised of two sections, the Introduction to the Legal Profession and a Pre-Employment Seminar. Introduction to the Legal Profession covers in detail the legal systems of the United States, in both the Federal courts and the New Hampshire state courts. Students will also be introduced to the Federal and the New Hampshire constitutions, to the legislative processes and to a “how to” approach to the law. Practical experience in drafting court documents, conducting initial client interviews and investigating cases will be gained. Ethical rules and regulations governing lawyers and paralegals will also be covered. The Pre-Employment Seminar includes writing a resume, drafting a cover letter, refining interview techniques, and conducting an independent job search. In addition, NHTI, Concord’s Community College has career and placement counselors available for customized counseling sessions.
