|Field of Study:||Legal Assistant/Paralegal
|Description:||The objective of the Paralegal courses is to provide the student with the required substantive law training to successfully enter the Law Society of Upper Canada’s paralegal licensing process. Students will learn constitutional and administrative law, client interviewing, legal research, evidence, small claims court, provincial offences, legal writing, dispute resolution and mediation, legal computer applications, tribunals, immigration law and landlord and tenant law. All law courses are taught by lawyers or licenced paralegals.
The intensive structure of our paralegal program includes traditional lecture and seminar courses, as well as field trips to local Courts and tribunals. There are also a number of mock hearings and presentations throughout the program. A co-op placement will ensure you graduate with exposure to the profession, and the requisite hours to qualify for the Licensing process. You will find a new confidence in yourself and your skills after your time with us.
