The Paralegal Studies field is demanding. When entering into this firld, it is extremely important to understand that studying the law is time consuming and if you don't plan on spending most of your freetime studying, this field is not for you. The workload starts out relatively small, as the program is designed to ensure you understand the basics to law. Once the basics are covered, the workload increases substantially, as it is designed to match a typical day at a law office. The curriculum is laid out by the American Bar Association. The curriculum is designed to cover everything you will need to know to be a successful paralegal. The facilities are laid out so that all the paralegal courses are held in one building. This building also includes a fairly large legal library that was kept up to date until 2012. The legal library from 2012 and forward is available to students through the internet. This is designed this way to ensure students can both find case study and laws through physical books, the old style, and online, the new style. At the end of the program, anot internship is required of all students to graduate. The professors are very accommodatiNguyen in helping you find a good fitting law office for you, and in doing so, hope to see the law office hire you upon finishing your internship. The success in job placement has been outstanding and promising!
Review Chippewa Valley Technical College
I am a brand new mother to an infant child, and I was extremely nervous about starting up school with an infant at home. When I started my first day of school, I came to realize that at 30 years old, I was in the median age group for my peers. There were fathers and mothers in my class. My professors, being parents themselves, we're happy to give me advice on how to make the two worlds clash and work together. One day, my baby sitter fell through as her own son was injured, and I couldn't find a sitter. My professor was more than accommodating as he told me to go ahead and bring my infant son to class. That is when you know your professors will take the proper measurements to help see you succeed. I just finished my first semester in the Paralegal program, and I earned a 4.0 for the semester. This experience has made me realize that Chippewa Valley Technical College really cares about their students and makes coming to class a joy.
As with any college, nothing is perfect. As a student, you have to be flexibleffective as well. My personal struggles come from being a parent in a household with two college students who are the parents and one infant. Between my fiancé's classes and mine, it makes it hard to find a baby sitter. As the core classes for the program are only offered during the day, we cannot make one parent a day student and one parent a night student. As we both are unemployed, daycare is not an option. In our city, daycare for an infant is about $300 per week. Because of this, we have to set up our classes alternating hours so we can bring our son to school and take turns between classes with him. If the core classes could be offered during the day and at night, I think it would help us out more. Our main struggle is when we have no choice but to schedule our classes over lapping. Then we have no choice but to bring our son to class with us.
