Syllabus




Does working in a law office sound exciting? Would you like to do legal research, help with trial preparation, and be the "right hand" of a busy attorney? If so, consider a career as a paralegal!

Careers in the legal field often require many years of training, but paralegals can enter the job market quickly. What's more, paralegals earn good salaries and have many opportunities for advancement. In addition, a skilled paralegal can do almost all of the jobs a lawyer does.

In this course, you'll discover what paralegals do and find out what you'll need to know in order to begin your own paralegal career. You'll start by getting an excellent grounding in legal terminology, contract law, and the tort system. Next, you'll learn how to perform legal analysis, conduct interviews and investigations, write legal briefs, and prepare for appeals. And finally, you'll get tips on internships and job-hunting.

By the time you're done, you'll know if becoming a paralegal is the right career choice for you. In addition, you'll have the knowledge you need to land an entry-level job or train for a more advanced position.
