UC ingot   UC Clermont College will host a free information session for those interested in the paralegal field from 6:30 – 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 27, in Room 154, the Snyder Building  at 4200 Clermont College Dr. in Batavia. The $50 application fee will be waived for anyone who applies at the session.  
 
During the information session, anyone interested will have the opportunity to meet current UC Clermont students, practicing paralegals, program faculty and staff, and representatives from the Cincinnati Paralegal Association. Advisors will be available to aid potential students in finding their best option.
 
The UC Clermont program, approved since 2000 by rigorous American Bar Association standards, offers a two-year associate degree or a one-year paralegal certificate for those who already have either an associate or bachelor’s degree. Paralegal classes are taught by attorneys with an average of 15 years of practical experience, and the college offers affordable day, evening and online classes. “Our paralegal program is one of only 30 percent of the programs nationwide that are fully approved by the American Bar Association,” said Professor Jeff Rubel, paralegal program director. “Our program is perfect for someone looking to retool, launch a new career direction after earning a bachelor’s degree or build a more competitive resume.”

According to the Ohio Department of Labor, the projected job growth for paralegals in Ohio is 17.3 percent through 2022. Under the supervision of an attorney, a paralegal performs all the job duties of an attorney outside of giving legal advice or trying cases in court – similar to a physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner’s work under a doctor. “We train students to become an essential and vital part of the legal team,” Rubel said.
