I completed the Paralegal I and II courses and absolutely loved the format. The online courses are so easy to follow, and the course leaders are knowledgeable and encouraging. The moment I was granted my certificate I applied for a job at the Pima County Attorney's Office. I was hired after my first interview. I was able to immediately apply my skills in the workspace. What a blessing! – Maria / Summer 2013
I highly recommend CLS; I'm currently taking their basic paralegal program and I have found it to be the most comprehensive, easy to understand and follow course. The knowledge I'm acquiring is priceless! If I can do it (I'm a grandma), anybody can.
