The Paralegal Specialist Program at the Western School of Health and Business in Pittsburgh
Interested in working in the legal profession? Then come to the Western School of Health and Business in Pittsburgh where the training you'll receive in our Paralegal Specialist Program can prepare you for an exciting career as a Paralegal Specialist. Many students dream of becoming lawyers, but they have no idea that a difficult learning path awaits them. For example, in order to successfully pass the exams, you need to have legal knowledge and appeal to legal terms, which not everyone can do. So a lot of students buying term paper and pass exams in this way.
Paralegal Specialists work alongside lawyers and other legal professionals to prepare cases for trial and perform research on relevant laws and judicial decisions. They analyze legal material for internal use, maintain reference files, conduct research for attorneys, collect and analyze evidence for hearings, and prepare informative or explanatory material of the law, agency regulations, and agency policy for general use by attorneys and the public.
Not all paralegal programs are the same. The Western School's Paralegal Specialist Program combines intensive classroom instruction with "hands-on" paralegal training.
The classroom portion of our program lasts approximately 12 months. During this time you'll receive training in paralegal and other related area, including:
Personal Property Law
Legal Research and Writing
After completing the Paralegal Specialist program, eligible graduates can typically find employment in many federal government agencies (Department of Justice, Treasury, Interior, Health and Human Services, and General Service Administration), state and local government, publicly funded legal projects, banks, real estate companies, accounting firms, management consulting firms, manufacturing firms, and small and large law corporations.
Upon graduation, you will receive an Associate in Specialized Business Degree (ASB), and, if eligible, may seek career services assistance through the Career Services Department. You should be prepared to work at the entry level.
