Hear from Our Happy Graduates
As a recent graduate of NIU College’s Paralegal Program, I am thrilled to share my transformative experience. When I enrolled, I was looking for a career change that promised both professional growth and stability. NIU College delivered on that promise and more. Within just 7 months, I transitioned from feeling uncertain about my future to confidently stepping into the legal field as a fully certified Paralegal.
I feel that the small class sizes and one-on-one guidance from legal experts with real-world experience made all the difference in the world. It helped me think critically like a lawyer and refine my writing skills in a way that textbooks and self-paced online courses could not.
I took advantage of their financing program and was working and paying for my class without too much trouble. I was able to focus on my studies without the stress of taking on overwhelming debt.
After I graduated, they helped me write a killer resume and thanks to their placement assistance, I was able to secure a position in a reputable law firm shortly after graduation. I love my new job and I feel like I am finally on the right path.
Choosing NIU College for my Paralegal training was the best decision for my career. It was more than just an education; it was a gateway to my new life. I wholeheartedly recommend NIU College to anyone looking to become a paralegal.
