University of Miami Launches Online Paralegal Program in Spanish

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The University of Miami is launching a new online Paralegal Studies Program in Spanish, geared toward Spanish-language speakers worldwide.

Based on its current four-month, in-class certificate program on the main campus, the new online course is for:

  • U.S. residents whose first language is Spanish and who wish to become trained Paralegals;

  • Professionals working with major U.S. corporations in Central and South America, the Caribbean or Spain;

  • Professionals working with Spanish-language corporations that in the course of their business with the U.S. must deal with U.S. laws and court procedures; and

  • Residents of Spanish-speaking countries who plan to relocate to the U.S. and start a new career. (Please note this is a non-credit course and will not qualify applicants for a U.S. visa).

Because the program deals exclusively with the U.S. legal system, students are required to have a working knowledge of English. However, all instruction is conducted in Spanish, including exercises and examinations. Students will be assigned a Spanish-speaking online instructor who will answer questions and supervise instruction. The new course will train students to work for law firms, corporations and government agencies that deal with the U.S. judicial system.
