Paralegal 1 year grad cert while working FT

Recommended Posts


I am considering taking the paralegal 1 year grad cert program in September. I also work FT. I want to know if anyone has been through a similar situation. I may not be able to make it to all the classes if I keep my job while doing this program. If someone has done something like this, how did you do?


Thank you for your feedback.

I am in a 1 year accelerated program right now, and do not work at all. I think it would be very difficult for you if you are working full time as the classes are very fast and lots of content to be covered, especially when things like mock trials and practical assignments come up.

    • Hi there, I have used the powerscore books as well as Nathan's books to study LR and LG's. Reading the question stem first is not great advice because it promotes a shallow understanding of the material. The Fox LSAT books promote active reading of the material which is made difficult when one is simply scanning for the bit of the passage that answers the question. I think reading the question stem first wil help people who are scoring in the 140s move to the 150s. However, if you have aspirations of a high-score, I do not think that reading the stem first will get you there because reading the stem first inevitably leads to a shallower understanding of the test and more wrong answers. Using Nathan and Ben's teachings I have managed to go from a 151 to a 162 in two months ish of study. That is just my two cents, but honestly what do I know.
    • Orientation started today so it's unlikely.
    • Really appreciate the info. To recap - (the most likely scenario is) you'd be able to participate in the recruitment process in the summer after your second year (out of four). Work as a summer associate after the third year. And return for articling after the four year program.
