We recognized Front Range Community College for offering one of The Best Entry Level Pre-Degree Paralegal Certificate Programs in the Nation, adding them to our list of top recommendations for students in the area.
We were excited to hear from Gerald M. Rogers, faculty member at Front Range, who took the time to answer a few questions about how the school works to create a great student experience that helps prepare graduates for a career in the legal field.
Are you finding a lot of career changers in your program looking to get their start in the legal profession?
Paralegals are really getting the respect they deserve these days, and taking on more and more responsibilities on the job. How is this changing the approach to educating new paralegals?
Gerald: Time Management Issues. UPL issues.
Does the program at your school include an internship and are faculty available to help students find one?
Gerald: Yes, we have an internship and we do help students find one who cannot.
What are some of the things you love most about the paralegal program at your school – the kind of things you’d like future students to know about as they consider their options?
Gerald: Our class sizes are reasonable. Our quality of instruction is very good. Classes are in the evening so both working and none working can attend. We also offer online courses.
