Professional & Continuing Studies

“I enjoyed the instructors and I am proud of the effort I put into earning the certificate.”

“I was interested in broadening my employment opportunities, and I found that a paralegal’s job was similar to a former position I held with an insurance company. By achieving a paralegal certificate, I could apply to both legal and insurance positions, as well other positions which require such skills.”

“The University of Delaware certificate was taught by practicing lawyers. They supplemented the ‘book’ learning with real-life experiences for a better understanding of the lessons. They encouraged participation, and added concrete illustrations to the material by sharing their own experiences as it related to the topic. The library experience of looking up cases, as well as researching in Lexis-Nexis was great ‘hands-on’ learning.”

“Overall, I enjoyed the experience – I hadn’t been in a classroom setting in over 25 years! I enjoyed the instructors and I am proud of the effort I put into it.”
