"There were several reasons for my decision to attend ECE's Paralegal Certificate Program. The fact that it was only a six-month program appealed to me in that I could complete the course quickly, and it seemed more challenging than most. The class schedule also allowed me to work full time while I was completing the program. Additionally, based on reputation, the Emory brand promises a high standard of education and speaks for itself when seeking employment."
"[At Emory] we were taught very well to be self-sufficient and to know how and where to find the answers to our questions in the work place. Independence is the hallmark of a good paralegal. It is what sets paralegals apart from administrative staff. Several times in my job as a paralegal I have encountered specialty litigation terms with which I was unfamiliar. In every case I knew exactly how to go about getting information which I was able to validate."
"I found the program to be informative, challenging and fun -- and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to enter the paralegal profession. You all do a great job of keeping things running smoothly and ensuring a positive learning experience. I'm already looking forward to taking additional classes through Emory's Continuing Education department."
"As a J.D. coming back into the workforce after a number of years of full-time parenting, I was nervous and confused about where I would fit back in the professional world. Were my research skills outdated? Did I recall enough of the law that I learned for the bar exam so many years ago? How would I make the contacts I needed to find a good position?
The Emory Paralegal Certificate Program was a wonderful transition for me. I found that I remembered more than I thought, and my research skills came back quickly.
Even more important was the career search support and advice that I received. I learned how to network and research opportunities in the world of Linkedin and Indeed. I also made wonderful friends with the other students as we helped each other with the course materials and the search for where we would fit in the legal world. "
"Thank you for all the help that you’ve given me – I know I relied a lot on you for polishing my resume and it did get me 3 interviews so far."
"My exposure as part of the Emory University Paralegal Certificate Program was top notch and I still "hear" (in my mind) the voices of my professors, advisors and/or mentors just as vividly today as during the training period."
