I have been looking into the Paralegal Certificate offered by the Center for Legal Studies. They partner with a bunch of reputable universities and community colleges to offer this program, and the certificate would be issued by the school through which the student enrolled in the program. The certificate is offered in 4 different formats, including in-person and online. I was thinking about doing it online through George Mason University. The reason I chose GMU is because their law school is accredited by the ABA (although the paralegal program itself isn't), and the campus is not too far from me, which would hopefully make it a little less obvious that I did it online. It seems almost too good to be true... tuition is only a little over $1000, and it only takes 14 weeks to complete. I'm wondering if there are many more certificate holders than there are jobs for them. My question is: Has anyone gone through the CLC's Paralegal Certificate program as a complete newcomer to the profession, and actually landed a decent job in the field? And a more general question: Does anyone have any personal experiences, good or bad, with the paralegal profession? I'm wondering if I would even like being a paralegal... Thanks in advance for any insight you could offer!
