TRAIN ONLINE FOR A CAREER AS A PARALEGAL
 
Anyone interested in pursuing a paralegal career can earn a paralegal certificate through an online course that begins June 25.
 
The course is offered by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in partnership with the Center for Legal Studies, a Colorado company which provides courses through colleges across the nation.

Students who complete the 14-week Paralegal Certificate Course© will receive their certificate from UL Lafayette.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ projections, the number of paralegal positions will be 28 percent higher by 2018 than it was a decade earlier, a growth rate that is much faster than the national average for all occupations. The national median earnings for paralegals is $44,480; freelance paralegal professionals can earn significantly more.

For more information about the Paralegal Certificate Course, contact UL Lafayette Continuing Education at (337) 482-6386. To register online, go to www.ce.louisiana.edu
