Humber College

Paralegal Education


Humber’s Paralegal Education diploma program explores the theoretical, procedural and advocacy aspects of law that may be handled by a paralegal licensed by the Law Society of Ontario. You will learn specialized practical skills within the areas of advocacy, legal research, specific courts and administrative tribunals. The course of studies includes business, small claims court matters, criminal summary convictions, provincial offences, landlord and tenant (among a plethora of other boards and tribunals), employment law, and alternative dispute resolution. Students will develop strong oral advocacy skills by participating in class and in role plays, as well as in presentations and mock trials before their peers and large audiences.
Courses in ethics and the rules of professional conduct, accounting, business planning, and entrepreneurship prepare you to create and manage your own paralegal practice.
During the program, you will develop strong communication skills, particularly in spoken and written English - essential skills for your future career. Students are required to demonstrate competency in small and large group oral presentations including role plays and mock trials in order to graduate.
Our advisory committee ensures that our program is current and meets high industry expectations.
