Working in a law office is challenging and fascinating. Legal administrative assistant jobs are some of the highest paid in the office admin field.
In order to be competitive in this in-demand industry, students need a strong background in administrative skills, as well as specific legal knowledge. Vancouver Career College's Legal Administrative Assistant program is taught by instructors with real-world legal experience. Students learn the fundamental legal procedures and background they need to keep a law office running smoothly.
The intensive program teaches administrative skills such as keyboarding, computer skills (including commonly used software), and legal transcription. Students are also familiarized with the Canadian legal system, including legal rights and the court system. Students learn about specialized areas of legal administration, including real estate, corporate, family, criminal, and wills and estates. Students gain hands-on legal experience through a five-week practicum placement.
