UNLV’s paralegal program comprises two semester-long courses with a total of 90 hours of classroom instruction: Practicum and the Law. For Practicum, we have identified the skills most in demand in a Nevada paralegal: effective legal research, persuasive writing, law practice management, document formatting and structure, court filing, calendaring deadlines, and ethical representation. Each paralegal will learn these skills and put them into practice through representation of two hypothetical clients: a plaintiff and a defendant. The Law course covers those substantive aspects a paralegal is most likely to encounter in their practice: Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure, Family Law, and Estate Planning and Probate. After finishing this course created specifically for UNLV students, paralegal graduates will have the knowledge, skills, and confidence they’ll need to enter the paralegal profession.
