Paralegal students at Herzing College Toronto participating in a mock trial
Updated January 2023
In our experience, paralegal training attracts a very specific kind of student. These people are analytical, hard-working, articulate, socially conscious, and driven to help others.
They have a strong sense of ethics and are genuinely fascinated by how our legal system works. We're talking about a special kind of person who believes in justice and wants to make legal services more available and affordable to Ontario residents.
Because that's exactly what paralegals do. So, what should you know about this training and career path before you take the leap and enrol in a program?
