Paralegal Certificate for the Incarcerated
Blackstone Career Institute makes every effort to accommodate the enrollment of incarcerated individuals in our Paralegal certificate program. We use soft-covered books and materials for ease of entry into most state prisons, federal penitentiaries, county jails, and other institutions.
Blackstone’s Paralegal certificate program enables students to learn about the law and the paralegal field by studying at their own pace and at their facility. No computers, proctors, or facility instructors are required. Upon completion, graduates will have earned a paralegal certificate and gained knowledge they can use now and in the future.
Our nationally accredited Paralegal certificate program includes the 900 clock hours of coursework needed to sit for the Accredited Legal Professional (ALP) exam and/or the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification, given by NALS…the association for legal professionals. Graduates will also meet the accredited business/legal course criteria needed to sit for the Certified Legal Assistant/Certified Paralegal (CLA/CP) exam given by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA).
