This intensive, nationally acclaimed program is designed for beginning as well as advanced legal workers. Training includes instruction on 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 relates to those areas of the law in which paralegals are most in demand. The Paralegal Certificate Course© offers instruction on how to work as a full-time or part-time paralegal, or how to open your own freelance business. There are no prerequisites other than a high school diploma (or GED), but students must be prepared to complete a significant amount of homework each week. This program can help students increase their office’s efficiency, productivity, and
billable hours as well as learn new marketable job skills.
Students who successfully pass this course will be awarded a Paralegal Career Advancement Certificate from Columbia State Community College in conjunction with The Center for Legal Studies. To receive a Certificate, students must pass numerous quizzes and successfully complete several legal document writing assignments.
