The ExpertRating Online Paralegal Training Course-I
(leading to ExpertRating Paralegal Training Certification I).

If you're interested in becoming a paralegal, this course is an important first step. Paralegals, also known as legal assistants, help lawyers prepare for trials. Paralegals are responsible for investigating the facts of a case and review laws, legal decisions, and legal articles that might be relevant to the case. Paralegals may also prepare written reports, arguments, pleadings, and motions. Paralegals are also often charged with organizing and tracking files, and may also draft contracts, estate plans, agreements, and other common legal documents. Demand for paralegals continues to be strong as more and more private law offices are turning to paralegals to help them reduce costs and provide more legal services in less time.

This course provides an overview of the American judicial system focusing on the origins of American law and the litigation process.
 


Important: This six-course series will provide you with the skills and knowledge you will need to perform the basic duties of a paralegal. By the time you finish this series, you will have a solid understanding of what activities a paralegal must perform and how to perform them. If you are interested in becoming a paralegal, completing this program will take you one step closer to your goal. However, please understand that this is a non-credit program and it does not lead to any type of professional certification or a degree.

 Although there is no current requirement in any state other than California that a paralegal have any level of professional experience or hold any type of degree, most employers prefer to hire paralegals who have experience working in a law office and/or an associate's degree, in addition to the skills and knowledge taught in this program. If you have not already done so, we recommend that you consider working as an intern in a law office and/or enrolling in an accredited two-year college degree program while (or soon after) completing this series of courses.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment is projected to grow much faster than average, as employers try to reduce costs by hiring paralegals to perform tasks once done by lawyers.

A paralegal is a professional who possesses either legal training and/ or knowledge and who works under the direct supervision of a lawyer. Paralegals do not directly interact with clients for the preparation of legal documents. Paralegals work in government offices, law firms, for corporations and for real estate firms. A paralegal performs a lot of legal work and is an integral part of the legal team.


 

The Paralegal Preparation course will help you to excel in this field. The ExpertRating Paralegal Preparation Certification is a comprehensive course which has been divided into six parts and covers legal terminology, information on legal documents, legal authority and legal writing.
