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 Vermont have come to rely on paralegals with the kind of expertise that can only come from earning a certificate or degree in paralegal studies.
Do you want to become a paralegal while studying pre-law? Are you a business professional with aspirations of advancing or specializing by reorienting your career around employment law? Fortunately, thanks to the strong and steady growth of the paralegal profession, there is now a program in Vermont designed especially for you.
And what could be better than an online program that allows you to get the education you need without major work and family life disruptions, all from the comfort of home.
Case in point: an online program is exactly what you’re after. So, whether you’re in Middlebury, Montpelier, or Rutland City, you can complete an undergraduate law program or post-degree certificate that will either get you started in the profession or help you advance.
