Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to pursue your paralegal licence and explore career opportunities in paralegal firms, private and public sector law departments, law offices, legal clinics and or as a private practitioner.
This program prepares you to become a licensed paralegal in accordance with the requirements of the Law Society Act.
