About Us
  • “I have been practicing law for 20 years and I formerly interviewed paralegal graduates from all local schools, including the two-year community college course and the UTEP Paralegal Certificate Course offered in conjunction with The Center for Legal Studies. Because of the superior training provided by the intensive weekend UTEP Paralegal Course, I now only interview and hire graduates of this paralegal course at UTEP.”

    —Bud Kirk, Lawyer
    The Law Offices of Bud Kirk, Esq.
  • “In my private law practice, I exclusively interview and hire graduates of the Paralegal Certificate Course offered by The Center for Legal Studies since I know that these paralegals have been effectively trained in legal document preparation, legal research, and legal writing.”

    —William Thoms, Esq., Professor Emeritus
    University of North Dakota School of Law
  • “I think I can speak for most mothers in that it is very difficult to attend school at night when you have the responsibility of children and a job. This course offered weekend days for a six-week period was very conducive to my situation.”
