Что я буду изучать?

Access to justice requires well-trained and licensed paralegals to fill the growing demand for affordable services in the legal profession. Centennial College’s Paralegal program prepares candidates with strong theoretical and practical courses needed to excel in this field.

The Law Society of Ontario accredits Centennial’s 3-semester, one year undertaking. Our graduate certificate program allows students, upon successful completion of all requirements, to be eligible to write the Law Society’s Paralegal licensing examination, enabling you to practice as a licensed paralegal in Ontario. Licensed paralegals may represent clients in areas such as summary conviction criminal offences, traffic violations, provincial and municipal offences, tribunals and the Ontario Small Claims Courts.

Throughout your studies within the Paralegal program, you will gain solid knowledge of Canadian law, concentrating on subject areas within the permitted scope of paralegal practice for your future career. As well as dedicated academic lectures, practice management and mock trials, there is a two day per week work placement in third semester totalling 196 hours of hands on training in established law and paralegal firms. Centennial’s experiential learning exceeds the requirements of the Law Society and assists in preparing our paralegal candidates to enter their chosen field, not only with practice experience but with the chance to network within the industry.

As a Centennial paralegal graduate you will be well-prepared to write your licensing examination and become an integral part of the legal system.

Program Highlights

You learn in state-of-the-art facilities such as an on-campus mock courtroom that gives you the opportunity to practice being a paralegal through moot court and mock trial competitions.
Hands-on learning within The Business School program includes the use of technology systems such as PCLaw, Quicklaw and other legal research tools that support paralegal objectives.
Successful Paralegal program students are highly organized, possess the ability to plan and prioritize, are comfortable with researching tasks, possess strong analytical, numeracy and interpersonal skills, thrive under pressure, have the ability to meet deadlines, are innovative problem solvers and decision makers, have the ability to work successfully in a team environment and adapt easily to technology and current industry computer software.

Please note: The qualification requirements and costs for each external accreditation, designation, certification or recognition are set by the granting body, not by Centennial College. In order to qualify for any external accreditations, designations, certifications or recognitions, students and graduates will need to follow the processes and meet the applicable requirements listed on the websites and in the materials of those external bodies.
