Become a qualified paralegal through CapU’s Paralegal Certificate while employed full-time in a legal setting as an LAA or Paralegal, and studying part time onsite or online. Pursue a rewarding and challenging career in law working under the supervision of a lawyer.
The Paralegal Certificate is offered to individuals who wish to study part time and who are already working full-time in the legal field as an LAA or Paralegal. Students primarily study substantive law and legal skills courses while gaining their procedural law skills on the job.
Some procedural law courses, including courses dealing with litigation procedures, are available as electives. You can begin your studies either in the fall term in September, the spring term in January or the summer term in May.
Our graduates are highly sought after, and we work closely with representatives of the legal industry to ensure that our curriculum is current and relevant.
Effective Fall 2022, course offerings for the evening option of the Paralegal Certificate program will be delivered online synchronously. Classes will be held online once a week from 5:30 – 8:20 p.m. All prospective applicants who live within the Greater Metro Vancouver (south of Squamish/west of Abbotsford) must apply for the evening option.
Once admitted to the evening option, those students will be allowed to register for evening online synchronous courses and/or waitlist for online asynchronous courses, or a mixture of both.
