Hire a Student: Practicum Placements

  • Is your law firm looking for highly motivated paralegals with both general and specialized skills? Students in the Paralegal Program Diploma option are available for six-month, full-time practicum placements starting in May each year.

    Students must complete a practicum after two years of classroom study in order to graduate. Working under the supervision of a lawyer, students integrate classroom study with on-the-job experience. For employers, it is an excellent means to evaluate a practicum student as a potential employee.

    Program faculty work closely with students and the legal community to ensure successful placements. Students are paid by their employer during their practicum, a sound investment that benefits everyone involved.

    99% of our graduates find employment as Paralegals.

    Interviews for practicum placements begin in March.
