This Paralegal Studies program from Humber College combines legal theory with practical applications in courses covering ethics and professional responsibility, negotiation and mediation, evidence, advocacy, tort law, contract law, insurance law, and employment law. Students are provided with the legal foundation needed to consider a career as a licensed paralegal.
We believe that properly representing a client includes understanding the client’s background and motivation. As a result, our program has eight electives which provide students with the opportunity to study social science, humanities and science electives.
Your career as a paralegal can take you in many exciting directions, from representing clients in the Ontario Small Claims Court and Provincial Offences Court to being a paralegal in a major law firm or government department.
Paralegals interview clients and witnesses, prepare legal documents and affidavits, conduct legal research, and often track down key information for a legal case. They identify case precedents and play a key role in assisting lawyers to prepare for examinations for discoveries, settlement hearings and trials. In fact, they are a key part of the legal process.
They work in law firms, as part of the legal departments of corporate firms, in government and in community organizations. You may also become a provincial offences prosecutor, a Small Claims Court legal representative, legal researcher, court monitor paralegal firm manager, or you may choose to start your own paralegal practice.
Paralegals also provide important advocacy services for clients appearing before specialized tribunals such as the Landlord and Tenant Board, and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
