SPRING 2008 SCHEDULE OF CLASSES

Whether exploring a new career option or preparing for law school, our paralegal programs deliver the skills and knowledge students need to succeed.

Paralegal Studies Program Chair Porcher Taylor says the majority of students enrolled in his Certificate in Applied Studies are preparing for law school.

While lawyers assume ultimate responsibility for legal work, they often delegate many of their tasks to paralegals. In fact, paralegals—also called legal assistants—are continuing to assume a growing range of tasks in legal offices and perform many of the same tasks as lawyers. One of a paralegal’s most important tasks is helping lawyers prepare for closings, hearings, trials, and corporate meetings. Paralegals investigate the facts of cases and ensure that all relevant information is considered. They also identify appropriate laws, judicial decisions, legal articles, and other materials that are relevant to assigned cases. Paralegals work in a variety of legal settings such as a law office, courthouse, administrative agency, corporate inhouse counsel office, or insurance company. In these organizations, they can work in many different areas of the law, including litigation, personal injury, corporate law, criminal law, employee benefits, intellectual property, labor law, bankruptcy, immigration, family law, and real estate. Regardless of where you are employed, you need to be be able to gather and analyze facts relevant to legal disputes, perform legal research, draft legal documents, and prepare witnesses and evidence for presentation at legal proceedings. An effective paralegal must have a firm grasp on both substantive and procedural law, excellent communication skills, and the ability to think analytically and logically.

Criminal Law, Estate Planning, and Land Use Law. Our Bachelor of Applied Studies degree in Paralegal Studies requires 120 credit hours. Students can transfer a maximum of 60 credit hours into an SCS undergraduate degree program. Specific transfer guidelines are available in our current catalog.

Undergraduate Degree

Admissions

This program provides you with the skills necessary to perform specifically delegated substantive legal work under the supervision of a lawyer and the verbal and written communication skills required by the profession. You’ll gain invaluable skills through courses like The Judicial System, Legal Research and Library Use, Legal Writing, Litigation, Real Estate and Contract Law. You’ll also have the option to specilize your degree by minoring in Law and Technology or Law and Public Policy. You can also choose to enhance your degree by taking other paralegal and undergraduate law courses in a variety of specialized topics such as Business Law,

Students applying to the undergraduate program should have a cumulative 2.0 grade point average on all previous college work. Applicants should request official transcripts from all colleges or universities they have attended and have them mailed directly to the School of Continuing Studies. We do not require an application fee, SAT or ACT scores or a foreign language. Students seeking admission to the Certificate in Paralegal Studies program should also have eanred a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited college or university.

8

Certificate in Paralegal Studies We also offer a Certificate in Paralegal Studies for individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree. This option requires 21 credit hours and is designed for career switches and those preparing for law school.

Careers, Salaries and Job Outlook According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, the median annual earnings in the industries employing the largest numbers of paralegals in May 2004 were $59,370 for the federal government; $38,260 for local government; $37,870 for legal services; and $34,910 for state government. Because employers are trying to reduce costs and increase the availability and efficiency of legal services by hiring paralegals to perform tasks formerly carried out by lawyers, the job outlook for paralegals is very good. Employment for paralegals and legal assistants is projected to grow much faster than average for all occupations through 2014.

Inspiring Campus The University of Richmond is nestled among 350 acres of hundred-year-old pines, rolling hills and inspiring architecture surrounding a 10-acre lake. No wonder it’s consistently cited by The Princeton Review as one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. Located in the western suburbs of Richmond, the campus combines the safety of a suburban environment with easy access so commuting is very manageable for adult students. See for yourself by visiting campus and attending an upcoming Information Session for Adult Students. Check our Web site for event details.

Once a student decides they are serious about transferring, we suggest attending an Information Session for Adult Students, which are held periodically throughout the year. You can also schedule a meeting with a student advisor for an unofficial audit of transfer work or to discuss degree options. You do not have to apply or be admitted to SCS to meet with a student advisor. Are you thinking about transferring at a later date? Our student advisors are also willing to speak to you before your current school’s registration begins to help choose courses that have a high likelihood of transferability and complete the general education requirements or your desired degree program. Students can transfer a maximum of 60 credit hours to an SCS undergraduate degree program.

SPRING 2008 SCHEDULE OF CLASSES

Payment PAYMENT IN FULL IS DUE BY THE END OF THE FIRST WEEK OF THE TERM WHETHER OR NOT AN INVOICE HAS BEEN RECEIVED. Students have the option of paying for classes with a check, cash or credit card (MasterCard, American Express or Discover). There is a fee for paying by credit card. You will still be responsible to meet all payment deadlines, even if you do not receive a bill. You may also make payments using the Tuition Pay plan. For more information regarding payment of fees, contact the Office of Student Accounts at 289-8147. Failure to make satisfactory financial arrangements can result in delay of graduation, denial of registration, removal from classes, withholding of transcripts, and/or referral to a collection agency. If your student account is referred to a collection agency, you will be liable for all collection costs, including attorney fees and other charges necessary for collection of this debt. Accounts referred to collections are reported to credit bureau(s). By registering for classes you are acknowledging receipt of this information and your acceptance of the associated responsibilities.

Tuition Payments

Full payment or plan of payment is due to the Student Accounts office by the end of the first week of the term or you will be dropped from class. You will still be responsible to meet all payment deadlines even if you do not receive a bill. You may pay using one of the following methods. 1. You can now pay your student account balance on-line by visiting BannerWeb (http://bannerweb.richmond.edu) and clicking on Student Services/Payment of Tuition and Fees/Payment of Tuition and Fees.

Tuition Payment Plan from Tuition Pay What is Tuition Pay? Tuition Pay by Sallie Mae is an educational financing company that provides families and students with a low cost plan for budgeting tuition and other education expenses. The Tuition Pay Monthly plan is NOT a loan program, therefore no debt is incurred. There is no interest or finance charge assessed by Tuition Pay on the unpaid balance due to the college. The only fee to budget payments through Tuition Pay is a $35.00 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee. Payments made through Tuition Pay are considerably less expensive than the cost of obtaining loans, paying with credit cards, or budgeting through other interest or feecharging payment plans. There is no credit search or qualifications necessary to use Tuition Pay. One of the reasons why the cost to budget with Tuition Pay is so affordable is because payments through Tuition Pay are made by using automatic payments from your bank. The automatic payment helps you budget tuition payments in a convenient way which ensures that the college will receive dependable and consistent tuition payments. With Tuition Pay you never miss a payment and you save the time and expense of writing and mailing checks. How does the automatic payment work? Automatic payments are simply payments that you authorize your bank to make on your behalf on a specific date each month. The amount paid by your bank is a predetermined amount that you have authorized. Your bank will make these

payments from either your checking or savings account, according to the instructions you have provided on your agreement with Tuition Pay. Payments will be made until the total amount due to the college is paid in full. Automatic payments are used to pay mortgages, life insurance premiums, car payments, utilities, and other types of bills. When you use Tuition Pay to pay your school tuition, your bank sends your payment on the 5th of the month directly to the bank that Tuition Pay uses to collect tuition payments. Before any payment is made, Tuition Pay provides evidence of your authorization for tuition payments to your bank. Your bank will usually verify this authorization with you and then set up the payment schedule. It is important to remember that Tuition Pay and your college never see your bank account or have any direct access to your account. You never lose any control of your account. The automatic payment process is strictly controlled by state and federal laws. With Tuition Pay your payments are made on the 5th of each month. Budget Period To qualify for the 3-month payment plan, Tuition Pay must receive student applications by August 10th for the Fall semester or December 10th for the Spring semester. The budget period is August through October for the Fall semester and January through March for the Spring semester. The Tuition Pay payment plan is not available for courses offered during the Summer semester. How to apply for Tuition Pay To enroll in the Tuition Pay Monthly plan simply go to their website at www.tuitionpay.com and click on “enroll now”.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

What if I have questions about my account? There is always an account representative who can answer questions about your Tuition Pay account once it has been established.

General Fee Refund

Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing. 3) The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfilled his or her professional responsibility. 4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the University of Richmond to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605 The University of Richmond‘s complete FERPA Policy Statement is available as part of the Office of the University Registrar‘s Web page at www.richmond.edu/academics/registrar/ferpa.html or by contacting the Office of the University Registrar.
