87% of U.S. companies rely on the Microsoft Office suite—yet most paralegals entering the workforce (and even those who have been working for many years!) are not proficient in these tools. Sure, they might be tech-savvy with mobile phones and tablets, but their skillset falls short in the software used every day in the legal industry.
Students and young professionals lack technical fluency in essential technologies like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and PDF.
Your paralegal career depends on your technology skills.
We show paralegals what they don’t know about the essential office technologies they’ll utilize in their daily professional lives. Then we address those key skill gaps with guided instruction on a module-based online platform.
Best of all, we allow students to work with live documents on their own computers, using their own respective versions of these software packages.
Qualified and Expert-level certifications are not only a powerful benchmark of personal progress, but they are also authoritative proof of proficiency for future law firm employers.
