Legal assistant schools in Quebec offer students educational programs such as short term certificates and associate’s degrees. A short term legal assistant certificate or diploma can typically be completed within one year, whereas an associate’s degree can be completed in two-years. Legal assistants perform many of the same duties as attorneys such as interfacing with clients, preparing legal documents, researching for legal cases, and preparing for court. Legal assistants are not licensed to practice law so they’re prohibited from giving legal advice, charging for their services, and presenting in court. Legal assistant careers are expected to be one of the fastest growing over the next decade.
