"I completed the Paralegal Certificate program this fall. I had been working as a paralegal for a while but had no formal training or legal education. This was a very rigorous, informative course that will be invaluable in the rest of my career. I am looking forward to taking some of the advanced topics that coincide with my current area of practice."
