DescriptionBecome a qualified paralegal through CapU?s Paralegal Certificate while employed in a legal setting and studying part time onsite or online. Pursue a rewarding and challenging career in law working under the supervision of a lawyer.

The Paralegal Certificate is offered to individuals who wish to study part time and who are already working in the legal field. Students primarily study substantive law and legal skills courses while gaining their procedural law skills on the job.

Some procedural law courses, including courses dealing with litigation procedures, are available as electives. You can begin your studies either in the fall term in September, the spring term in January or the summer term in May.

Our graduates are highly sought after, and we work closely with representatives of the legal industry to ensure that our curriculum is current and relevant.

Beginning September 2021, all Paralegal Certificate students will be allowed to choose whether to take their courses in-person or online, or a mix of both, without geographical restrictions.

This change will be subject only to priority being given to students taking the program from outside the Lower Mainland.
