Obtain Computer Skills Independently

It is strongly recommended that paralegal students obtain
computer skills independently as these classes are not part
of the program. The ability to use the keyboard and word
processing, spreadsheet and presentation software are basic
skills needed in the paralegal profession. Feel free to plan early
with a counselor or program director.
