The body of knowledge required to effectively perform legal support services can only come from a formal education in paralegal studies. As attorneys, corporations and government agencies work within an increasingly complex legal framework, the level of responsibility they expect paralegals to be able to take on has also increased. Law offices and other employers in Nevada have come to rely on paralegals with the kind of expertise that can only come from earning a certificate or degree in paralegal studies.
There’s a lot of excitement beyond the sights and sounds of Las Vegas. Head to any of the many law firms, nonprofits, and government agencies in Vegas and throughout the State of Nevada, and you’ll find paralegals working alongside attorneys or as a crucial part of corporate legal teams.
Whether you’re a career changer, a high school graduate, or a working paralegal looking to specialize or advance your career, there are plenty of educational options. While the sheer number of paralegal certificate and degree programs makes it easier than ever to begin or advance your paralegal career, it may also make it difficult to narrow down your options and decide which program is right for you.
We’ve taken the work out of finding a program that best suits your educational background and career goals. Here we recommend our top pick for schools that offer online paralegal programs that have achieved national and/or regional accreditation.
