A Real-World Education
Your instructors will be professional paralegals who have personal experience working with attorneys and meeting their demands. They will be able to give you the inside scoop on what you can expect out in the real world, and how to make the most of your paralegal education.
Much of your education will take place in a workshop-like environment where you’ll study in small groups with your fellow paralegal students. You’ll practice many of the skills you’ll use on the job, including doing legal research, writing contracts and interviewing “witnesses.” And you’ll be challenged to find solutions to scenarios drawn from actual legal cases.
Career Services Support
During your paralegal education, you’ll spend time learning business etiquette and other soft skills that can help you succeed in the working world. After graduation, Everest’s Career Services team can provide further support by offering help with resume writing, interview preparation and, most important of all, setting up appointments with prospective employers.
