A two-year program offering day and evening classes, it’s designed to prepare a student for employment as a legal assistant or paralegal.

Approved by the American Bar Association since 1976, Paralegal Studies at Rose State is a two-year program offering day and evening classes.

Paralegals, also called legal assistants, perform a wide variety of duties and tasks which are professional in nature, distinct from routine clerical tasks. A primary responsibility of a paralegal is to relieve the supervising attorney of routine duties so that the attorney is able to use his/her time in more complex areas of the case. Proper use of a paralegal/legal assistant enables an attorney to handle a heavier case load and increase productivity, thereby resulting in the delivery of legal services to a client more efficiently and economically.

The Paralegal Studies Program is designed to prepare the student with the necessary knowledge and skills to gain employment as a paralegal/legal assistant and/or to allow the student to advance to positions of increasing responsibility in the legal field.

Continuing Education Providers

Rule Review – TDLR is reviewing the Continuing Education Requirements located at Title 16, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 59 for re-adoption, revision, or repeal. Read the Notice of Intent to Review

Reduced Fees for Continuing Education Providers – On November 21, 2013, the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation approved a reduction in the application fees for Continuing Education Providers. The initial and renewal application fees were reduced from $250 to $200, a savings of 20%. The fee reductions are effective March 1, 2014 for initial applications and April 1, 2014 for renewals. The Commission also changed CE provider registrations so that they are no longer required to register for each occupation. One provider registration covers all TDLR programs. TDLR estimates these fee reductions and changes will result in a savings of $34,450 annually, with an estimated five-year savings of $172,250.

These savings result from the fee review we conduct each year, as part of our vision of Smaller, Smarter Government , said TDLR Executive Director William Kuntz. TDLR license fees must be reasonable and necessary only to cover the costs of administering its programs. With these fee reductions, our licensees and the public will receive the same high level of service but now at a lower cost.

At their November 21st meeting, the commission lowered fees for more than 400,000 TDLR licensees. TDLR estimates the total savings for all licensees will amount to nearly $6 million each year, with an estimated five-year savings of $29,661,245 .

I m proud that TDLR is leading the way to lower economic barriers for entry into the Texas workforce while helping businesses grow and keep more money in their pockets, said Commission Chairman Mike Arismendez. With these fee reductions, TDLR licensees will save real money now and for years to come.

TDLR continuing education providers use a web-based system enabling them to submit course completion documentation on the TDLR web site. Visit the Continuing Education Completion Reporting Site .

The roster system allows licensees to obtain credit almost immediately once a course has been completed. It also reduces data entry requirements for providers and allows for quick verification that the information provided to TDLR is accurate.
