Paralegal Studies - Summer Intensive
Our six-week Summer Intensive Program is offered in a day format each May through the month of June. This program allows students to complete four months of study in six weeks of full-time, focused training. Students attend classes during the day from Monday to Friday, and including multiple Saturdays. The Summer Intensive program is the quickest way to earn a highly respected certificate and enter the job market as a skilled professional. Additionally, graduates are eligible to apply for the NC Paralegal Certification exam.
About the Certificate
Our curriculum is comprehensive. When students finish our program they are ready to go to work. The skill-based format of the Duke Paralegal Program provides students with practical, hands-on training in preparation for the workplace. Each student finishes the program with a client file filled with documents about his or her case - all drafted over the course of the program. This client file serves as a showpiece for interviews and provides students with an end product that represents the skills they have acquired through the program. The curriculum includes a core skills class and multiple substantive law classes, which are all taught by licensed, practising attorneys.
