Meredith Hurst, Paralegal Certificate program graduate
Even though I have many years of experience as a paralegal, earning these certificates has strengthened my resume.”

“After practicing as a paralegal for about six years, I enrolled in the University of Delaware’s Paralegal and Advanced Paralegal Certificate programs to expand my legal knowledge, further my career and advance in my firm.”

“I researched and visited several paralegal programs, and decided on the University of Delaware for its one-year timeframe, manageable cost, and its faculty of practicing attorneys.”

“With the classes taught by attorneys with years of experience in Delaware law and the Delaware legal community, they were able to draw extensively on their own practical insights and experiences. Many times you learn from the books when you are studying law; but the certificate program instructors brought real-life practical knowledge into the classroom.”

“The programs also provided the opportunity to network and interact with others from the legal community, which I found very beneficial for practicing in Delaware.”

“Even though I have many years of experience as a paralegal, earning these certificates has strengthened my resume. Since obtaining the certificate I have received a promotion and a raise, and I am now a senior paralegal at my firm.”

Meredith Moffett Hurst is a graduate of the Paralegal Certificate from the University of Delaware.
