Certified Paralegal Review Course – Spring 2018


This is a special offering of our popular review course for the Certified Paralegal exam.  NALA, the organization that sponsors the exam, revised the format of the exam effective January 1, 2018.  Everyone must take the new exam.


The new exam will consist of two sections:  The Knowledge Test and the Skills Test.   The Knowledge Tests is a computer-based exam over several legal subjects.  The Skills Test is a written exam that tests the examinee on skills related to writing and analysis.


NALA is offering the Knowledge Test portion of the exam during March of 2018.  The Skills Test is expected to be available in July of 2018.


Phoenix College is offering this special version of its review course to help students prepare for the Knowledge Test being offered in March.


The cost of this special version of the review course is only $100!  This course includes five afternoons of instructor-led review and access to practice questions and review material.  Students must separately register, and pay, for the exam directly with NALA.  Students in this review course can then take the exam at Phoenix College on special, designated testing days.  This special testing opportunity is for students in this review course only. 


This review course will help prepare you for the Certified Paralegal (CP) exam offered by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA).  The course covers all required areas of the exam.
