In the legal profession, experience is gold. Many lawyers and paralegals begin their journey to a career in law by taking up paralegal and other related short courses. These experiences are great stepping-stones to law school and a career as an attorney.
The courses we offer are not just for those who want to become paralegals. The experience you get from our paralegal certificate courses can be a big help to law school students and applicants.
Preparing for the LSAT
Similar to every other law school applicant, maximizing your LSAT score is a must. The LSAT is nothing like the tests you had in high school and college in that you need to prepare for this admissions test for months.
At The Center for Legal Studies, we have helped countless students pass the LSAT not just through our LSAT Prep course but through our paralegal training courses as well. Our intensive, nationally-acclaimed programs are designed for beginners and advanced legal workers.
Letters of recommendation are crucial in law school applications, as it provides a legitimate insight into your experience and educational background.
A law school’s admissions committee will want proof that you do possess the skills, characteristics, and educational background required to make it in the legal field. This is where the paralegal experience from our institution and from local firms can help.
It can give law schools an idea on how good you are at arguments, research, drafting, and editing.
Exploring the Field
Your time as a paralegal or learning about the paralegal profession is your chance to explore the areas of the law that you deem interesting. Exploring these potential practice areas allow students to strategically plan and pursue their associate positions, as well as the specialization they want to pursue as lawyers.
Those who do well in their summer associate positions often get their first job offer out of law school from the very firm they interned for.
Paralegal experience is not just a short course, it’s an experience—something you can use whether you plan to pursue a legal or profession or not.
