Legal Secretary Certificate Program

This certificate program can help you get an entry-level position as a legal secretary – or, if you already have a position, it can upgrade your already existing skills.

Streamlined Requirements:

You will complete a single comprehensive course that will improve your knowledge of:

  • Legal terminology
  • Court structure
  • Calendar Control
  • The digital legal environment
  • The discovery process
  • E-Discovery
  • Citation form and structure
  • Electronic court filing
  • And more.


If you have no previous experience with Microsoft Word or a similar program, you must take Microsoft 2010 Level I before entering the Legal Secretary Program. This may delay your completion of this certificate program by one semester. See Microsoft Office Courses for Microsoft Word description and schedule.

We also recommend you attend an optional information session, scheduled at the beginning of each semester, before the start of class. See our catalog for timing, or call 895-3394 to reserve space.


All 17 three-hour sessions of the class cost $1,995,  not including a $195 fee for books, materials and web support.
