  • Successfully complete sixteen (16) hours per week for ten (10) weeks
  • Complete a classroom component of a minimum of eight (8) hours
  • Have a minimum 2.75 GPA
  • Have completed certain prerequisite courses

Supervised by a licensed, practicing attorney and usually by a practicing paralegal, the student will be both an observer and a participant in the operation of the assigned office.

Students can take advantage of the Paralegal Institute’s personal career placement assistance, online job bank, and network of program faculty and alumni.
