Duke University’s Online Global Paralegal Certificate Program trains students for careers as professional paralegals. This internet-based program provides comprehensive support materials designed to help each student successfully complete the program. The program is based on the United States legal system and includes traditional texts, online lecture notes, mock exams, writing labs, and reference materials for each of the 50 states. Additionally, as part of the program, students are provided access to Lexis Nexis and Westlaw, two of the most recognized legal research tools in the world.
The Duke University Online Global Paralegal Certificate Program is completely online. An instructor is assigned to each student, but students can work at their own pace. Instructors are experienced U.S. attorneys and work with students through the duration of their studies. Any site with Internet access will allow students to take part in the Duke University Online Global Paralegal Certificate Program.
Note: The program curriculum is based on the United States legal system, therefore it focuses on the role of paralegals in the United States.
