As a key part of a legal team, the Legal Assistant is responsible for a variety of administrative and research-based tasks. In our program, we teach skills like case investigation, filing legal documents, scheduling meetings, and general office support so you can be prepared for the work that lies ahead.
We want our students to feel ready for the real world. In our Legal Assistant program, it’s required to complete an externship as part of your education. This experience can prepare you to assist in a courtroom, work with wills and estates, help with administrative duties in a law office, or work in a government agency.
At PCI, we offer financial aid to those who qualify. Whether it’s a grant, scholarship, or federal financial aid, we want all students to have the opportunity to pursue their goals. To find out which option works best for you, contact our financial aid department.
