Most Affordable Paralegal Training Maintained In Tough Economy
Want to save money while getting legal education? The Center for Legal Studies is the place to be!
[USPRwire, Thu Jul 08 2010] The Center for Legal Studies takes great pride in bringing students the highest quality paralegal training possible for the best price in the nation.
Due to increasing administrative costs associated with teaching and maintaining their programs, the Center has increased the tuition price for a number of their courses. Despite increasing costs, The Center for Legal Studies has not changed tuition prices since 2006. At $1189 plus books, the tuition is still very reasonable and well below the cost of competing programs, which students will find ranging from 3,000 - 30,000 for basically the same education.
Based on a survey conducted every two years by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA), paralegals graduating from certificate programs are compensated at a higher rate than those graduating from degree programs. Attorneys know that certificate program students are trained in one thing: specific legal assistant skills.
Paralegal students are trained to interview witnesses, investigate complex fact patterns, research the law, prepare legal documents, and assist in preparing cases for courtroom litigation. The instruction is practice-oriented and relates to those areas of law in which paralegals are in most demand.
For more than 30 years these intensive, nationally acclaimed programs have been available through partnerships with colleges and universities throughout the United States.
The Paralegal Certificate Course can be completed in 14 weeks on-line, and as quickly as 6 weeks through a live lecture course. Students are able to choose different formats giving them options to find the best fit for their own schedule.
Additional certificate courses offered by many Continuing Education and Professional Studies departments include: Legal Investigator, Legal Secretary, Legal Nurse Consultant, Mediation and Victim Advocacy. Many of the courses can be completed in 7 weeks with the modest tuition price of $575 plus books. No where else can students gain such comprehensive training in such a short amount of time for their money.
