Paralegal Studies - Classroom
The classroom program is offered on Duke's Campus in Durham and in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The fall and spring classroom-based programs offer working adults the opportunity to earn the Duke Paralegal Certificate by attending classes in the evenings and on weekends. Classes are held two to three nights per week, plus some Saturday sessions. If you prefer a classroom setting and thrive in an environment that provides you with the opportunity to learn with and from other students, as well as an instructor, then the classroom-based program is for you.
The program curriculum is comprehensive. The skill-based format of the Duke Paralegal Program provides students with practical training in preparation for the workplace. When students finish our program they are ready to enter the workforce as a paralegal. Each student finishes the program with a client file filled with documents prepared as part of their studies. This client file will serve as a showpiece during interviews and provide students with an end product that represents the skills they acquired through their studies in the program.
