Give Your Paralegals the Resources They Need to Thrive

AILA University's self-paced Paralegals Online Course combines a focus on immigration law with lessons on crucial paralegal practice skills: legal research, ethics and professionalism, and client service. Each module includes texts, videos, and multiple-choice quizzes, ensuring mastery of the material covered. Modules cover the basics of immigration law and the paralegal's role, as well as substantive topics covering each area of immigration law. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion.

It is a great complement to AILA's Guide to Immigration Law for Paralegals, a downloadable, comprehensive resource that's ideal for quick consultation.
