The Fleming two-year Paralegal diploma is accredited with the Law Society of Ontario (LSO). Fleming program courses meet all competency requirements and prepare students to write the licencing exam and become a member of the LSO. Fleming’s two year (four semester) Paralegal program has some practical advantages. Not only are our students taught by experts, with a wide range of experience in the field, their first three semesters of study are completely integrated with students in the college’s Law Clerk program. Should students so choose, they can enhance their qualifications and possible job opportunities by returning for an extra semester of study and leave with a second diploma in that related field.
