The Southwestern Illinois College Paralegal Studies program will prepare you to work in a law firm, governmental agency, insurance company, or another area of the legal profession. Many of our Paralegal students already work in the field of law and take classes to improve their skills. Other students need specialized training for their current positions and want to increase career choices with their current employer or supplement the training they received on the job. Courses in the Paralegal Studies program are taught by practicing attorneys and sitting judges. Some courses are available through video conferencing or online.
