|Field of Study:||Legal Administrative Assistant/Secretary
|Description:||In the Office Administration – Legal program at Centennial College, students will see the legal system unfold before their eyes. The program's Office Administration - Legal courses will not only allow students to develop core office administration skills, but will also focus on: legal office environments; building an understanding of current issues in Canadian law; specialized areas of practice such as civil litigation, family law, real estate, wills and estate, and more; and the use of specialized legal office software, with an emphasis on computer-generated document production and word processing.
To round out the Office Administration – Legal training, students will complete a two-day per week field placement in the final term, during which they will have the opportunity to apply specific legal office administration skills. Among these skills will be: preparation of legal documents using word processing, legal terminology, and office procedures used in law firms or corporate legal departments. The field placement will be organized and supervised by faculty members of the program. Faculty and staff will work closely with students to help them find a placement well suited to their needs. While the placement is unpaid, it provides valuable resume enhancement experience.
