Paralegal College UK

Qualify as a paralegal

In the modern law firm, the paralegal is a person of considerable importance. As a paralegal you will have input into how clients' cases are dealt with. You will be considered a specialist within your area of practice, which could be to do with commercial law, contract law, criminal law, tort law, civil procedure, or any other area of law.

You will be meeting a range of clients and advising them on matters which are of the utmost importance to their daily lives.

The courses at Paralegal College are approved by the UK's leading paralegal organisation, the Institute of Paralegals, and our unique methods of assessment are designed to get you firmly on the ladder to success. All assessments are verified by an independent external examiner.
