The exacting field of law offers excellent career opportunities for students graduating as legal administrative assistants. Upon completion of the program, students find employment in specialized as well as general law offices, government offices and corporate legal departments.
Many graduates of the Legal Administrative Assistant program proceed to the Paralegal Part-time Certificate program. The Paralegal Part-time Certificate program requires students to have two years work experience as a legal administrative assistant prior to enrolling in the first course. Legal Administrative Assistant program graduates who have achieved a cumulative "B+" average and who have obtained employment in a law firm, government law department or corporate law department are now eligible to enter the Paralegal Part-time Certificate program. This allows them to further their education in the evening while earning a salary and gaining valuable experience in the legal support field.
