Earning the Post-Baccalaureate Paralegal certificate is a great way for individuals who already have a bachelor's degree in any field to switch gears and quickly gain employment as paralegals. In this program, students will focus on completing only legal specialty courses covering five areas of law practiced in this part of Ohio: probate, litigation, real estate, domestic and business, and essential courses in keyboarding, Word and business writing. These courses will provide students with the case research and document drafting skills necessary to effectively support the work of attorneys. Students wishing to transfer legal specialty courses to Edison should review the transfer policy .
NOTE: Although paralegals assume many preparatory and drafting tasks essential to the practice of law and work under the supervision of an attorney, they are strictly prohibited from carrying out the duties considered to be the practice of law including setting legal fees, accepting cases, giving legal advice, and presenting cases in court.
