Herzing College Paralegal Program

The one-year program gives students the required 120-hours of internship.

Students in Ottawa and Toronto can now study to become a licensed paralegal at Herzing College.

The Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) recently granted accreditation to Herzing College’s Paralegal diploma programs on both the Toronto and Ottawa campuses, making students eligible to apply to take the Paralegal Licensing Examination through LSUC.

“Herzing Ottawa is one of only 3 colleges approved by the LSUC to offer an accredited Paralegal program in the Capital Region,” said Dr. Michael McAllister, campus president of Herzing College – Ottawa.

“With over 800 law firms, as well as the federal government, internship and employment opportunities are numerous.”

The one-year program gives students the required 120-hours of internship, which is a pre-requisite to write the licensing exam.

“What I liked best about the Herzing Paralegal program were the teachers and staff,” said J. Wayne Pitterson, a Paralegal and Herzing College graduate.

“They were able to relate to students and portray the feeling that they truly cared, allowing myself and others to reach for the stars with a vast array of knowledge of the program. This was key for me.”
