Certificate in Paralegal

Program Details

At Rasmussen College, the Paralegal Certificate is designed for students who already have an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree to pursue careers in the fast-paced legal industry. Small class sizes and experienced instructors ensure you gain the skills necessary for providing services in all phases of the legal system, including: drafting legal documents, identifying relevant information sources and navigating legal databases. The curriculum is aligned to industry standards that are published by organizations such as the National Association of Legal Assistants. And preparation for the National Certified Legal Assistant/Paralegal Examination is built into your courses—the application fee for which is included in your tuition. Through flexible courses offered fully online or on campus, you can complete your Certificate in as quickly as one year on a schedule that works for you.

Rasmussen College will reimburse the application fee for each first attempt of all the industry certification exams for which you qualify to take. Should you need to take an exam more than once to receive a passing score, you will be responsible for all subsequent exam application fees.

Time to complete is dependent on number of credits transferred and credits taken per quarter.
