Helping Canadians get back to work.

PARALEGAL

The legal profession is a dynamic and well-paid sector that demands employees have the most up-to-date skills and education. Paralegals are a vital element to any legal team who are well-respected for their knowledge of legal documentation and procedures.

CDI College’s Paralegal diploma program teaches a combination of administrative skills with specific paralegal training. Students study day-to-day administrative skills like advanced keyboarding and business communications as well as the law and legal processes.

This includes an introduction to the Canadian court system including elements of corporate law, family law, real estate, criminal law, and litigation. Students also learn how to handle evidence and legal documentation.

The paralegal training at CDI College includes a practicum where students will put their newly-acquired skills to work in a legal office.
