Paralegal II (45 hours - 4.5 ceu's)
Welcome to Paralegal II, the second section of the two-part Paralegal Certificate Course© (Core Courses) offered online. This online course represents the culmination of twenty (20) years of “live” classroom instruction of this course for liberal arts and pre-law students at major universities across the United States. To serve foreign students and law firm employees overseas, as well as people residing far from our live classroom lecture locations, we began offering this course on a VHS format in 1987. Now, with this interactive online format, we are overcoming the boundaries of distance and time by bringing the classroom into your office or living room. This interactive Paralegal Certificate Course© provides guided instruction and, in some cases, credit hours with which to work toward a degree. Plus, students successfully completing both section I and section II will receive a paralegal certificate from their chosen, sponsoring university.
This course will provide you with a working knowledge of legal authority: how it is used in the litigation process and how to locate it through legal research. You will also learn the basics of law office management, substantive law (such as criminal law, domestic relations, real property law, and bankruptcy), and informal and formal advocacy.
