EDUCATION | Been Thinking of Changing Careers? Become a Paralegal In As Little as Two Semesters


Have you been thinking about a career move? You may want to take a look at Waubonsee Community College’s new Paralegal program. Paralegals play a vital role in assisting lawyers and their clients with a variety of tasks, including conducting research and preparing legal documents for hearings or trials.

There are two options for this program. The Paralegal A.A.S. degree is a 60-credit hour program. The Paralegal Post-Associate Degree Certificate of Achievement, designed for those who already have an associate degree or higher, is a 21-credit hour program that can be completed in just two semesters. Both prepare graduates to work in a variety of areas associated with the legal profession, including courts, law firms, and government agencies.

Classes begin August 24 and are designed to mesh with busy schedules. Core skills and terminology are mastered through discussions and case studies, and the instructors are professionals with extensive experience.

More good news: salaries range from $20.34 to $35.41 per hour, and over the past 5 years, there has been a 9.6% increase in jobs in Waubonsee’s district. Learn more at
