Our online Paralegal Certificate Program is designed to precisely meet the educational requirements of the State of California. Specifically, California Business and Professions Code Section 6450-6456 states an appropriate educational requirement to be:
"A certificate of completion of a paralegal program at, or a degree from, a postsecondary institution that requires the successful completion of a minimum of 24 semester, or equivalent, units in law-related courses and that has been accredited by a national or regional accrediting organization"
Students attend live online classes two evenings per week, and complete the remainder of their activities online when convenient for them.
