Paralegal

Paralegalism is one of the fastest growing careers in the country. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the number of paralegals to increase 28% between 2008 and 2018, much faster than the national average for all occupations. Learn to increase your efficiency and billable hours with this intensive, nationally acclaimed, 84-hour Paralegal program - designed for beginners, as well as, advanced legal workers. Students will be trained to:

  • Interview witnesses
  • Investigate complex fact patterns
  • Research the law
  • Prepare legal documents
  • Assist in preparing cases for courtroom litigation

This instruction is practice-oriented and focuses on those areas of law that are most in demand.  No prerequisite but expect to complete a significant amount of homework for each session!

Details of the fall 2018 course will be available on July 1, 2018
