“I had often thought about going back to school, but the timing never seemed right and I felt I'd really missed the opportunity. I came across the VCU Paralegal Certificate Program and I thought, this was made for me! With a toddler and a full time job, I couldn't justify missing out on such an important time in my child's life by going to work all day and class in the evenings. The Saturday classes were a perfect fit, and for only six months, now this was doable!”

“I've been very impressed with the curriculum we've covered in the sections so far. I feel we are getting practical information that will transfer right into the field, as well as a great foundation of our legal system. Even after many years in the court system, I feel that this program has enhanced my knowledge.”

Paralegal certification provides additional professional advantages. There are many professions that, while not titled "paralegal," are able to make use of a paralegal’s skills. Some of these professions include: real estate, landlords/property managers, patent clerks, investigative positions, social services, and office managers. Many government and corporate positions can also be enhanced by a paralegal education.

NOTE: We do not recommend that paralegals offer their services directly to the public. To do so risks engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.
