Online Paralegal Studies Courses

CGCE is also partnering this summer with The Center for Legal Studies to offer multiple online training programs for legal careers.

The online Paralegal Certificate course—an intensive, nationally acclaimed program designed for beginning as well as advanced legal workers—is the most popular offering. Students will be trained to interview witnesses, investigate complex fact patterns, research the law, prepare legal documents, and assist in preparing cases for courtroom litigation. The program’s goal is to prepare students to work as a paralegal upon completion.

In addition to the Paralegal Certificate course, the following courses are also available:

  • Advanced Paralegal Certificate course (15 specialty topics available)
  • Software Essentials for the Law Office
  • Employment Law
  • Legal Secretary

All courses can be taken during one of the six sessions scheduled this year. The next session will start on June 29. Flexible payment options are also available for those who qualify. For more information or to register online, please visit
