Parafreegal in Chicago, Illinois

If you have contacts in law firms whom you can tap to get you a job, then I don't think it matters. These programs teach you almost nothing that you will use in your everyday job in the legal world. You could probably transition from being a legal assistant to a paralegal even without the schooling.
