NHTI’s Paralegal certificate prepares you for professional status as lawyers’ assistants with a broad academic curriculum that emphasizes the skills, substantive knowledge, and ethics. You’ll learn strong writing skills, an analytical approach to organizing and reviewing material, and a foundation in word processing and computers. Although a paralegal works under the supervision and direction of an attorney, it is important that they be well-motivated and self-starting. This program is available evenings only and is financial aid eligible.

Paralegal work requires discretion and independent judgment; a paralegal works under the supervision and direction of an attorney. Even though a paralegal can perform many of the tasks that have otherwise been performed by attorneys, they may not give legal advice, represent a client in court, or otherwise engage in the practice of law.
