“Students mention being surprised by how the internet class offers a feeling of closeness and attention that a LIVE course can provide,” said Evelyn Ferchau, OSU Correspondence Education manager. “Awarded top honors, the user-friendly structure also allows Pre-Paras the study-freedom they need to pair their already busy lifestyles with their continuing education goals.”

Other positives mentioned were: the knowledgeable instructors, the efficiency of the course and the tuition price.

Students who have become certified through the CLS programs have job offers in a variety of fields, Ferchau said.

These include in real estate; in judicial roles working directly for judges and public defenders; in government agencies—such as Obamacare and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), even in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and in the nursing field—focusing on medical insurance, medical practices and hospital procedures. Students also find jobs in thousands of large corporations as well as in the ever-growing home health care industry.

“Students are working for non-profits, international law firms, small businesses and boutique law firms. NGO’s (non-government organizations) such as The Red Cross, Save the Children and other environmental and educational causes find CLS graduates especially useful,” she said. “Graduates are making a median of 46K/annual salary. Their career experiences encompass being a strong supportive figure—maintaining files, preparing affidavits, creating documents, writing contracts, assisting with depositions and interviews while offering a variety of legal assistance in specified fields.”
