Paralegals are important members of legal teams and law office staff.
The Paralegal program offered by Anthem Education schools and colleges uses a career-focused approach to prepare students for entry-level positions.
The Paralegal profession was featured by Yahoo! Education as one degree that could be useful to upgrade skills in the current challenging economy. It’s one degree that builds skills in its own right, and can be useful complement an existing degree.
