Criminal Justice, A.A.S.

Everyday, Americans are confronted with endless images of gangs, drugs, armed robbery, domestic violence, and white collar crime. With one out of every four families victimized by crime each year, it is not surprising that two recent surveys found crime to be the number one concern of American citizens.

The criminal justice system is the network of agencies and employees whose sole purpose it is to battle America’s crime problem. Many are discovering that one of the best weapons in this war is a more educated criminal justice professional.

The Criminal Justice curriculum at Calhoun attempts to provide students with a well-rounded educational experience. Some courses, for instance, may be very theoretical, while others offer opportunities for hands-on application. Before completing their degrees, many students choose to do an internship with one of over 25 participating agencies. This gives the student a glimpse of the criminal justice system in action.

Calhoun also has an active Criminal Justice Club which participates in various service projects and social activities throughout the year.

Calhoun has one full-time and numerous part-time faculty member dedicated to Criminal Justice with the appropriate academic preparation and practical experience in law enforcement, the courts, corrections and juvenile justice.

Everyday, Americans are confronted with endless images of gangs, drugs, armed robbery, domestic violence, and white collar crime. With one out of every four families victimized by crime each year, it is not surprising that two recent surveys found crime to be the number one concern of American citizens.

The criminal justice system is the network of agencies and employees whose sole purpose it is to battle America’s crime problem. Many are discovering that one of the best weapons in this war is a more educated criminal justice professional.

Paralegal and Legal Assistant

Paralegal, A.A.S.

See Details

The Alabama Department of Labor lists Paralegal as one of Alabama’s Hot 40 and Top Growth Job professions. This growth is linked, in large part, to the Legal and Business communities’ reliance on paralegals for increased services formerly performed exclusively by attorneys. Paralegals, under the supervision of licensed attorneys, can provide clients (legal and corporate) with valuable legal services cost effectively. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.

Paralegals are typically the backbone of law firms providing attorneys and clients with quality drafted legal documents and assistance in the trial process. Paralegals are often called upon to meet with clients, interview witnesses, review critical documents and provide many more essential functions relative to client representation at all levels. As the profession has grown, so has the variety of jobs in which paralegals are placed. Many corporate employers including banks, insurance companies, defense contractors and other large businesses often employ “in-house” paralegals to prepare many of the documents necessary to business. As the need for more affordable legal services increases, so too will the need for paralegals.

Calhoun Community College’s Business Administration Department offers an Associate of Applied Science Degree concentration in Paralegal Studies. Calhoun Paralegal Studies students are exposed to a wide range of classes designed to provide the future paralegal with a working knowledge base of both procedural and substantive law. Courses include Domestic, Business and Criminal Law as well as specialty classes on Bankruptcy and Real Estate Law. Calhoun students learn from accomplished faculty including current Alabama Circuit Judges, Federal Bankruptcy Trustees and other prominent members of the North Alabama legal community.
