About the Program

Paralegals perform a variety of crucial tasks, including legal research, drafting legal documents, and interviewing clients. Our curriculum stresses understanding and reasoning rather than rote learning of facts. Our legal specialty courses are taught by practicing lawyers and paralegals who bring their real-world experience into the classroom.

The paralegal certificate program is flexible and convenient, with 100% synchronous and online courses (9 credits must be completed synchronously).

Paralegals cannot give legal advice, accept cases, set legal fees, represent clients in court or perform any legal service without the supervision of a licensed lawyer.
