YOU BE THE JUDGE
Learn more about both criminal justice and the law, then deliver your verdict.
Can’t decide between criminal justice and paralegal? Learn both law and order.
TCL’s Criminal Justice & Law Certificate program allows you to experience both before deciding. The 18-credit-hour program can be completed in as little as one full-time semester. On the legal side, courses include business law, ethics and criminal law. On the order side, courses include an introduction to criminal justice, the judicial process and correctional systems.
Whatever you decide, you’ll have the skills and knowledge you need to succeed.
