Training for Paralegals

To help you become an indispensable paralegal

Training for paralegals only starts after the paralegal certificate program ends.  The Paralegal Boot Camp started its paralegal training programs back in 2010 to help fill the gap between what they teach in paralegal school and what you need to know when you are actually working as a paralegal.

The Paralegal Boot Camp courses do not replace a paralegal certificate or paralegal degree.  Our paralegal courses are focused on paralegals who have already graduated from a paralegal certificate program and now want to learn the skills needed to work as a paralegal.  Essentially, our courses are considered to be paralegal CLE (continuing legal education).

There are many options out there for paralegals who just want to collect CLE credits to keep their credentials. Keeping up with your certification credits is important, but it doesn’t make you an indispensable member of the team.

How many attorneys have ever asked you if you’re keeping up with your CLE credits?

Attorneys want to work with paralegals who stay ahead of the curve and solve their problems.

And while our courses will give you paralegal CLE credits, it’s not our mission to fill your filing cabinet with certificates of attendance.

Our mission is to provide paralegal training programs that help you become an indispensable member of the legal team.

Ann Pearson started the Paralegal Boot Camp in 2010 after many years in the legal industry as a paralegal and a paralegal manager.  Ann was a litigation paralegal for many years, working primarily in commercial litigation, antitrust, products liability and construction litigation.

Ann later became the paralegal manager at McKenna, Long & Aldridge LLP (now Dentons), where she managed the paralegals and case assistants in their Atlanta, New York and San Diego offices. Ann significantly increased the skill set, retention rates (a/k/a job satisfaction!) and profitability of McKenna’s paralegal group through methods that she now teaches in the paralegal training programs at the Paralegal Boot Camp.  While many of the courses for paralegals focus on litigation paralegal skills, many of our paralegal training programs also relate to topics such as paralegal billable hours, paralegal communication skills and other areas that are relevant to all practice areas.

Ann Pearson teaches the Paralegal Job Search & Career Development Skills course for Emory University’s Paralegal Certificate Program.  She is the former President at the Foundation for the Advancement of the Paralegal Profession.  Ann is a member of the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) and the Project Management Institute.  She is the former VP Education for the Atlanta Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
