ABA-Approved • Established in 1972

Welcome to the Paralegal Training Program!

For over four decades, UCLA Extension's Paralegal Training Program (PTP) has been at the forefront of training individuals for a successful career as a paralegal. The PTP was one of the first programs to be approved by the American Bar Association as meeting high standards in faculty selection, academics, resources, curriculum, programming, administration, and student services. Today, the PTP continues its tradition of excellence in paralegal education as an ABA-Approved program that is well-respected in the legal community.

The Paralegal Training Program is part of UCLA Extension's Business, Management, and Legal Programs.
