SOUTH HOLLAND, IL– South Suburban College is hosting a Virtual Open House for its Paralegal Program on Thursday, December 10th at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. The Paralegal Program is offering an entry level class in the Spring 2021 Semester at SSC. Virtual Open House attendees will access the ZOOM link through ssc.edu/info and be informed about an exciting career pathway with a significant occupational growth outlook.
Information will be provided about SSC’s Paralegal/Legal Assistant curriculum including a 60-hour Associate Degree program and a 39-hour Certificate, both designed to prepare students to become highly trained paralegals and legal assistants. Graduates are equipped with the knowledge, skills and credentials to work in a variety of legal environments including:
- Civil and criminal litigation
- Law offices, and corporate legal departments
- Insurance and banking
- Public and governmental agencies
“Whether you are looking for a change in your career path or looking to begin a career, this is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has an interest in the law,” says Becky Walters, J.D., Paralegal Program Coordinator.
SSC has the only American Bar Association (ABA) approved paralegal program in the Chicago Southland and Northwest Indiana region, arming graduates with a significant advantage entering the workforce. As such, the College requires that all of its instructors be lawyers or judges to ensure the quality of instruction. Prior to joining the SSC team, Walters was a Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney for nearly 12 years.
SSC has announced spring classes will be offered through its virtual classroom beginning Monday, January 11, 2021, and class schedules, registration services and a new “live chat” with staff are all available online from ssc.edu. Future SSC students can get started at admissions.ssc.edu.
