Paralegal Training

Have you struggled to develop a professional development program for your legal support staff?

Your attorneys are too busy to develop and present training programs to your paralegals.

Your senior paralegals are also too busy.  Especially if they have a billable hour requirement.

Even if anyone in the firm had the extra time, would that be the best use of their time?

Have you ever substituted a training program for a “Free” Vendor Lunch and Learn?  If you have, then you know that 30 minutes was a sales pitch and the other 30 minutes had just enough content to make the team think it was too complicated and they should outsource that type of work to the vendor.

The other option used to be to send a paralegal to an outside CLE event.  Even before COVID when that was possible, the problem was that you don’t really know if it advanced their skill set or just left the department short-handed for the day and gave them a workbook that collects dust on a shelf.

The Paralegal Boot Camp delivers training that helps paralegals do their job better and adds immediate value to their careers and to your organization.

We do this on topics that YOU CHOOSE.

In a format that YOU CHOOSE.

And on a schedule that YOU CHOOSE.

It was overall one of the most productive presentations I have ever attended.”
