Our paralegal training program is designed to prepare graduates for entry-level paralegal careers.

Paralegals are a distinct group of professionals who serve an integral role in the delivery of legal services. Paralegals are employed in all areas where legal work is performed, including law firms, banks, corporations, insurance agencies, legal clinics, courts, governmental agencies, real estate offices, title companies, accounting firms, and legal aid offices. Paralegals must work under the supervision of an attorney, performing many duties such as conducting client interviews, locating and interviewing witnesses, conducting legal research, drafting legal documents, correspondence and pleadings, summarizing depositions, and much more. However, Paralegals, like all non-lawyers, are prohibited from practicing law without a license. This means that they cannot engage in activities such as giving legal advice, representing a client in court, setting a fee or accepting a case.
