Paralegal Post-Baccalaureate

Certificate Number: 19-110-2

Paralegals work under the supervision of lawyers in a range of tasks—researching the law; investigating; preparing for hearings, trials, and real estate closings; interviewing clients and witnesses; and preparing legal documents and other legal correspondence. Paralegals cannot give legal advice or represent clients in court. If you are detail oriented, organized, strong in communication, and enjoy researching and analyzing facts, you might find a career as a paralegal very rewarding. The Paralegal Post-baccalaureate Certificate is appropriate for those persons who already have earned a bachelor’s degree.


  • Certificate is approved by the American Bar Association.
  • Classes are taught by Wisconsin attorneys and paralegals teaching Wisconsin law.
  • Credits may be transferable; consult with a counselor regarding specific courses and institutions.
