Training for Paralegals
At the Paralegal Boot Camp, we believe there are two types of paralegals and it’s really all about mindset. There are those who have a paralegal career and those who have a paralegal job.
Regardless of your education credentials, your current job title, or where you work – when you know that you are a valued, indispensable member of the legal team, you enjoy going to work every day.
In order to get there, you have to invest in your paralegal career. You have to do things to stay ahead of the curve instead of just keeping up with the latest trend.
Training for paralegals only starts after the paralegal certificate program ends.
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 add skills to have a successful paralegal career.
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 is not our mission to fill your filing cabinet with certificates of attendance.
Our mission is to help you become an indispensable member of the legal team who enjoys going to work every day.
Ann Pearson started the Paralegal Boot Camp in 2010 after twenty 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, product 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 paralegal courses focus on litigation paralegal skills, we also offer firm-wide paralegal training programs on topics such as paralegal billable hours, paralegal communication skills, ethics, and other areas that are relevant to all practice areas. Law firms, government agencies, and corporate legal departments use our online paralegal courses for their internal paralegal professional development programs.
Ann also 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 of Education for the Atlanta Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
Ann Pearson frequently speaks at paralegal association events and legal administrator workshops. Contact Us if you would like to receive information on speaking engagements for your upcoming association event.
