I had an exceptional learning experience in the Paralegal Course.

I joined the course because I wanted a career change. And any nervousness I had about switching careers was whisked away on Day 1. The curriculum prepared me well for my transition into the legal field and I am grateful for all of the tools I was given as well. Learning from actual lawyers and paralegals working in the field was incredibly valuable. Not only did I learn the fundamentals of what it takes to be a paralegal, I gained real-life knowledge about what it is like to work in the legal field. After completing the course, I was able to obtain a great job as a paralegal in a litigation law firm with only 15 weeks of starting the course. I could not have asked for a better introduction into the legal world.
