There is an emerging demand for paralegals in Canada and Ontario as rising populations continue to express a strong need for affordable legal representation and access to the justice system. In Ontario, paralegals can be licensed by the Law Society of Ontario to provide legal services within a prescribed scope of practice.

Durham College’s (DC) Honours Bachelor of Paralegal (HBPL) will develop future practitioners who have the requirements to apply to the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) to become a licensed paralegal or apply to law school or graduate studies. The HBPL program is grounded in the disciplinary fields of law and legal studies to help students develop a strong cultural competency lens to support the provision of legal services to diverse populations including immigrants, refugees, Indigenous peoples, women, and 2SLGBTQIA+ clients.
