Durham launches Honours Bachelor of Paralegal degree

Durham College has launched an Honours Bachelor of Paralegal degree. Students in the program will develop their legal context and cultural competency so that they are prepared to serve diverse populations including immigrants, refugees, Indigenous peoples, and those in the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community. Graduates will be able to provide legal services under a lawyer or licensed paralegal, and will be eligible to apply to become Licensed Paralegals. “The student experience and the impact graduates’ expertise has on members of the community are at the forefront of program development,” said Durham Executive VP, Academic Dr Elaine Popp. “The Honours Bachelor of Paralegal program will develop confident graduates who are well equipped to advance in the legal field.” The degree is reportedly one of the only four-year programs of its kind in Ontario.
