Paralegal Studies Certificate - Meeting between lawyer, paralegal and client

Paralegal Studies Certificate

The verdict is in: a successful career as a paralegal awaits.

If you’re interested in the law, our online, nationally-acclaimed program is a perfect fit. Designed to educate both beginning and advanced legal workers, you’ll learn how to assist trial attorneys, interview witnesses, investigate complex fact patterns, research the law, and assist in preparing cases for courtroom litigation. The instruction is practice-oriented and focuses on the areas of the law in which paralegals are most in demand.

Upon completion, you’ll have everything needed to excel as a full- or part-time paralegal, or branch out on your own and start a freelance business.

Programs start six times a year and are offered in seven week sessions.
