Paralegal Courses

As an online College, we do not offer degree-level courses.  Students can complete our Certificate or Diploma courses.  To be eligible for the Paralegal courses, all applicants must have completed the High School diploma, have previous office experience and skills and be fluent in English Language.

Our Paralegal Courses cover:  British Columbia, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan.

These courses are for Paralegals who are employed to work under supervision of qualified lawyers as assistants within the legal sector throughout the provinces. They can specialise in one area of law and so it is not necessary to complete an extended law syllabus. On completion of our courses, they will be able to work under supervision either in private law firms or other public legal sectors. All our courses are of National Competency Standards set for the provinces. Paralegals will learn Principles of Canadian Law comprising 5 core subjects plus practical skills required by barrister solicitors in preparing and making court applications, proofreading, interviewing skills, legal writing skills and much more as outlined in our Course Syllabus.

*  In Ontario, paralegals must be licensed in order to work independently. We do not offer Licensed Paralegal Courses for the Province of Ontario.

If you wish to work within Ontario, you can study and qualify for the Business Law Courses or the Legal Assistants Diploma/Certificate as outlined in our Syllabus below.

•      Paralegals are not qualified lawyers and they work under supervision of barrister solicitors. They do not require the same level of competency as barrister solicitors.
•      Entry level salary can start at $16,000.00 per annum. More experienced paralegals can expect more.
•      Our courses qualify you from Intermediate to Advanced level.
•      Paralegals are employed in a number of roles such as Junior Paralegals, Assistant Paralegals or at Senior levels.
•      The level of Senior Paralegal can be achieved with previous work experience or qualification with Module 4.
•      Paralegals’ importance within the work place is growing rapidly. They supplement the
work of barrister solicitors bringing more affordable legal services to members of the public.
•      Our courses are suitable for Paralegals working under lawyer’s supervision.

There are 3 stages of qualifications for a Paralegal  - Introduction, Intermediate and Advanced.

Intermediate Level qualifies you as a Paralegal.  This course covers from Introduction to Intermediate. Modules 1,2,3 must be completed unless exempt.

Advanced Level qualifies you as a Senior Paralegal.  Module 4 must be completed.

Each module is taken separately.

If studying full time is not a feasible option, study with us and get qualified.
