Paralegal Certificate Program Instructors

University of Houston School of Continuing and Professional Studies prides itself on the quality of its instructors.  The Paralegal Certificate Program is facilitated by one instructor, but guest speakers with immense law backgrounds are invited to teach specific topics related to their fields.  Our instructors are passionate about challenging students to not only learn paralegal skills but to also gain the confidence necessary to work successfully in the legal field.  Those who have completed this program have been met with great success in finding employment as paralegals.
