How is school going? You asked about taking the "fast education
approach" -- that kind of education is not thought very highly of in
the profession or among paralegal educators. Check out this article
written by a former president of the paralegal educators'
I hope this article will help you find the program right for you:
The best advice I can give you is to contact paralegals in your state
or local area. If you can tell me what state you're in, I can give
you contacts to talk to and who can tell you what kind of educational
standards the employers there look for and expect.
