Begin your paralegal career!
The paralegal industry is among the fastest-growing occupations in the U.S., and the demand for professional legal assistants is expected to rise in the Orlando and Central Florida area. The competitive legal market requires professionals to demonstrate a commitment and a mastery of essential paralegal training, skills and knowledge to employers. A paralegal certificate at Rollins College prepares ambitious individuals, as legal assistants, for employment in the growing Florida legal community with the skills and credentials necessary for success.

The sequence of classroom training you receive in the paralegal certificate program can be used in a law office or in many other fields such as real estate, social services and government. This paralegal studies program is distinguished by a focus on comprehensive legal-specific skills such as investigating fact patterns, conducting law-related research and preparing cases for courtroom litigation.
The employment opportunities in the Florida paralegal field are expected to grow exponentially. More paralegals are hired to do the work that was once performed by lawyers.
