An ABA-approved paralegal program offered in cooperation with the UCLA School of Law. (Formerly Attorney Assistant Training Program.)
The Paralegal Training Program (PTP) seeks to prepare you to: function as ethical, effective, and efficient professional paralegals in law firms, businesses, government, and nonprofit organizations; perform a wide variety of legal work under the supervision of attorneys; and easily adapt to the changing role of the paralegal and to the changing needs of the legal community. The program provides training in substantive and procedural law, legal analysis, legal ethics, professional responsibility, legal forms, and practical skills necessary to function in the public or private sector as a competent and professional paralegal. The program is approved by the American Bar Association and fulfills educational requirements to practice as a paralegal in California. Instructors are approved by the UCLA School of Law, and are practicing judges, attorneys, and paralegals. The program provides two options for study: a Litigation Option (available summer and fall quarters) which offers training in a variety of legal fields of study; and a Litigation/Corporation Option (available in winter and spring quarters) which focuses on corporate and business litigation.
Completion of the Paralegal Training Program fulfills the educational requirements for California paralegals.
