I have graduated from highschool, soo now I am to decide what to take in college. ( oh joy ) I have came across the Legal Office Assisant program at a local college & found it quite interesting. I have no legal background in law but however am quite well in English, using the computer and do not feel I would have a problem learning the knowledge needed to be a Legal Assisant.
My question is to those more familiar with the background.. Is this a good decision to make? A young person with no legal background taking this program? I am self-motivated and do not feel I'd have a problem.
ALSO, it is a Certificate program.( 1 Year) ( I know how controversial the topic is about legal assistants preparing for a career through a certificate/online education ) However, I believe the college offers a placement upon completion of the course. I am aware that some Legal Assistants have degrees from Universities for this career. It is sad to say that I did not prepare for a University education, so it not an option for me.
SOO, to those wonderful people who took the time to hear out my dilemma, what are your thoughts? please write back! Thank you so much for your input. :-)
