DescriptionThis program is the only degree program of its kind in Canada, combining the theoretical underpinnings of the legal system with practical applications. Paralegals provide important advocacy services for clients appearing before specialized tribunals such as the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board and the Immigration and Refugee Board, and before the Provincial Offences Court and the Ontario Small Claims Court. Clients are discovering that properly trained paralegals are able to meet many of their law-related needs in a cost-effective manner.

Humber's multidisciplinary approach includes professional training in legal writing, advocacy and negotiations, and legal research. Faculty believe that properly representing a client entails understanding the client's background and motivation. Therefore, this program includes psychology, sociology, political science, and the philosophical foundations of the legal system. Work placements offer on-the-job experience where students will utilize and sharpen new competencies.
