Program Details

In this program, you'll gain the skills you need to enter the paralegal workforce and prepare yourself for the CP certification exam through the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA).

First, we'll discuss the roles, responsibilities, and day-to-day realities of paralegal work. We'll explain how paralegals are regulated and the ethical responsibilities of legal professionals. Then we'll introduce you to the fundamentals of the U.S. legal system.

You'll learn how to perform legal analysis, as well as how to conduct legal research and interviews. We'll help you gain litigation communication skills that will be critical for your job.

In addition, you'll gain the soft skills training you need to thrive and maximize your effectiveness as a paralegal.

The course concludes with a capstone project to help you prepare a professional resume and portfolio. You'll create a complete litigation file that includes a legal analysis brief, investigative report, client interview checklist, intake memo, complaint, legal research, and interoffice memorandum of law. We'll also teach you how to create a strong resume that encompasses your specialized skill set and showcases the impact you would make for your next employer.

This program comes with a voucher to cover the registration fee for NALA's CP exam. Through our partnership with NALA, you'll receive NALA membership, as well as access to Westlaw and NALA's Certified Paralegal Exam Review courses.
