Well-trained legal assistants are in demand. Law firms, corporate legal departments, and even businesses rely on their legal assistants to manage a broad range of essential tasks on a daily basis. From handling correspondence and preparing legal documents to scheduling meetings and controlling confidential materials, legal administrative assistants are at the heart of any law office. In order to be successful on the job, legal administrative assistants must possess the fundamental knowledge and skills that comes with the right post-secondary education.
The Legal Administrative Assistant program at CDI College prepares students to step into the legal assistant role as soon as they graduate. Students hone crucial administrative skills including knowledge of industry-standard office software, effective business writing, bookkeeping, and general office skills. Along with the principles of Canadian law and general law, they also learn about key areas of the legal field including civil litigation, family law, corporate and commercial law, real estate law, and wills and estate law.
Graduates of the Legal Administrative Assistant program will be able to apply their new skills and knowledge to administration duties in a law office or legal environment.
