Hey fellas..

I was interested in getting certified as a Paralegal or Legal Assistant, but I can't seem to find any information on how long it takes or how much it costs. Can anybody answer this? Also, what would you guys suggest as far as programs go (names if you know any)?

I've been a paralegal for over 25 years. Presently there are numerous schools that offer paralegal programs. Make sure you get one that is ABA approved. I personally recommend the program at UCLA but I'm a little predjudice since I used to teach there.

How long it takes depends on the school and the program. They avg between 1 - 2 years.
