Choosing to become a paralegal and working in the field of law can present our students with a diverse range of opportunities to make a difference, both in their local area and to the profession as a whole. While many people are aware of the activities of famous paralegals, such as Erin Brockovich and Merrell Williams, thousands of paralegals across the U.S. devote their time and effort every day to making a difference to their community, their profession, and to people in need.
The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA), suggests that paralegals should aspire to contribute 24 hours of pro bono community service work annually. They also provide annual pro bono conferences, recognizing the work of paralegals who committed their time, free of charge, to causes such as “Innocence Projects” with the aim of providing legal representation for people wrongfully convicted of crimes. But what can a paralegal do with their pro bono time to make a real difference?
Here at Northwest Career College, we run one of the top paralegal programs in Nevada, offering our students the skills and experience they need to successfully enter the field of paralegal work and position themselves to maximize their earnings. Our Paralegal instructors are seasoned attorneys and highly trained professionals who are able not only to teach you the law, but also to guide you through the many ways a paralegal integrates into a Las Vegas law practice.
We offer on-campus and online paralegal classes to accommodate your work and family schedule. Our Career Services team will work with you to help you find the best paralegal employment opportunity in Las Vegas, and their expertise in this area has given us a 100% success rate in job placement rate for paralegal graduates. Call us today at (702) 403-1592 to find out what our paralegal program can offer you.
