We have recently revised and enhanced the following career training program: Paralegal
This program is ideal for students who are looking to become a Paralegal or prepare for the CLA exam.
The program textbooks, Introduction to Paralegalism: Perspectives, Problems and Skill and Paralegal Today: The Legal Team at Work, have been updated to the latest editions, and online content has been revised to reflect this change. In addition, the program flow has been improved to help students with the more challenging portions of this program, and discussions boards have been added to allow for more facilitator-to-student and student-to-student interaction throughout the program. In recognition of the breadth of content covered in this program and the 300 program hours expected to complete, the initial duration of access has been increased from 6 months to 12 months. The allowed extensions remain unaffected.
The Paralegal Online Training Program will prepare you for success in this growing career field. You’ll learn about the U.S. legal system, how to conduct legal research and legal interviews, how to perform legal analyses, and more. Your training will prepare you to become a legal secretary or paralegal and to take the certification exam.
All materials are included! This online career training program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.

I enjoyed the knowledge that I gained for legal research and for areas of law that I didn’t have the experience in. I think the way the site was developed is very well done and very easy to navigate.

Although the online course experience demanded tremendous self-discipline, I was very grateful of the opportunity to advance my future career in an independent manner which allowed me to continue working full time at my current job and care for my family. My facilitator, Casey Thompson, was always prompt in responding to questions and grading assignments. The resource portion/listing of the program was also a great help. – L.H., Parkland College
Amy Anderson the facilitator with ed2go was a great assist with helping me complete the course. Whenever I had questions or concerns, she was there to help me. Because of her, I kept on with the course – there were times when I thought I just couldn’t complete it. But her guidance and kind words kept me motivated. This course was perfect. – C.R., Cecil College
