UC Clermont College will host an Open House and free information session for those interested in the paralegal field on Saturday, March 12 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. in the Snyder Building, Room 154 at 4200 Clermont College Drive in Batavia. The $50 application fee will be waived for anyone who applies at the session.
During the information session, future paralegal students will have the opportunity to meet current UC Clermont students, practicing paralegals, program faculty and staff, and representatives from the Cincinnati Paralegal Association. Advisors will be available to aid potential students to find their best option.
UC Clermont offers both day, evening and online classes. “Our program is great for someone who is looking to re-enter the job market, or is looking to retool to be more competitive,” said Program Director Page Beetem, Paralegal Studies Program at UC Clermont. The program offers a two year associate degree or a one year paralegal certificate for those who already have either an Associate or Bachelor’s degree. Paralegal classes at UC Clermont are taught by attorneys with an average of 15 years practical experience.
“This is an exciting time for the paralegal profession. While the attorney job market is tough, it is in part because firms are hiring more paralegals for more substantive work,” said Beetem. Employment of paralegals and legal assistants is projected to grow 17 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations (U.S. Department of Labor).
