Paralegals are paraprofessionals who must work under the supervision of an attorney. The laws of Kentucky and other states prohibit paralegals from engaging in the practice of law or providing legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law. Therefore, completion of a major, minor, or certificate in Paralegal Studies/Sciences does not entitle one to practice law,provide legal services directly to the public, or render legal advice, except as provided by law.
