The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the job outlook for paralegals to increase 12% between 2018 and 2028, much faster than the national average for all occupations.
The national median earnings for paralegals is currently $50,940/year and freelance paralegal professionals average significantly more across the board.
This program is designed for beginning as well as advanced legal workers. You will be trained to interview witnesses, investigate complex fact patterns, research the law, prepare legal documents, and assist in preparing cases for courtroom litigation. The instruction is practice-oriented and relates to those areas of law in which paralegals are in most demand. There are no prerequisites to take the course, but you will be expected to complete a significant amount of homework for each session. This program will help you to increase your office’s efficiency, productivity, and billable hours as well as learn new marketable job skills.
