Paralegal Education

Paralegal Degree Program – This program was formed by a small group of friends when we realized there was a shortage of truthful, unaffiliated, information available to students online. We want to help students get informed so they can make the best decision regarding their education and employment. Our goal is to provide useful, well researched rankings and resources to those interested in going to work in the paralegal field.

Our main editor is Oliver Plante. Oliver has been interested in the paralegal field his whole life. He was frustrated at the lack of information available to those seeking to become educated when he was looking to become educated himself. It was his frustration that caused us to start this site.

Paralegals spend their time helping lawyers carry out a wide variety of tasks. Some paralegals simply keep up with the paperwork that attorneys carry around, while others perform actual research. The exact duties that are carried out depends on the lawyer a person works for. To enter into the occupation of a paralegal, a person will need to go through paralegal training. There are many community colleges and universities that offer such programs.

Pursuing a career as a paralegal degree is an incredibly rewarding decision for many young adults. Paralegals have the opportunity to work in close conjunction with lawyers on legal cases without the need to attend several years of law school.

Benefits of an Online Degree
Online degrees have their advantages. They allow students to complete their required coursework from anywhere that has an Internet connection. In doing this, students are enabled to be at home with children and/or tend to their work duties. Most online paralegal programs can be completed in anywhere from 15 to 48 months depending on the type of degree being earned. A higher level degree will of course take longer to earn; however, the job opportunities accompanied with a higher level degree far outweigh those available with only an associate’s degree.
