Paralegal Program Seeks Soldiers

To meet the growing need for paralegals in Columbus, Ohio, a new paralegal certificate program is beginning this fall for veterans. All are welcome, but the goal is to reach out to soldiers and their spouses looking for a career change.

Columbus attorney Bob Poydasheff is on board to teach the city's first paralegal certificate course geared toward military veterans, wounded soldiers and their spouses.

The accredited program, coordinated by the Center for Legal Studies, is offered to students in colleges and universities across the country to include aspiring legal professionals at Auburn University and the University of Georgia. The Institute for Innovative Technologies in Educational Programs is bringing the live lecture course to the Cunningham Center in September and January. The Veterans Association-certified organization is offering the course to students for $1,089 each.

Though the tuition does not include textbooks, Poydasheff said most accredited paralegal programs run $300 to $400 more than what ITEP is offering. Financial aid is available.
