Courses

Every day brings new challenges, whether personal or professional. You’re a busy person…always on the go…tackling one problem after another…and taking on new responsibilities.

Yet, getting ahead is important to you. And so is staying ahead…you want to be considered one of the best in the paralegal field.

API makes it easy to improve yourself and enhance your abilities. Our online advanced and specialty courses offer a way for you to stretch your mind, specialize in a particular area of the law, and make yourself more valuable to your employer.

Whether it’s mastering a subject to become more attractive to employers or staying abreast of the latest trends and developments in the paralegal field, you can pursue specialty certifications at API in popular areas of the law, such as:

  • Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Corporate Law
  • Elder Law
  • Foreclosure and Debtor/Creditor Law
  • Intellectual Property Law

Our specialty certifications are designed to give you an edge in a competitive market—whether it’s advancing in your job, diversifying your career options, increasing your earning potential, obtaining a new position, or simply doing your current job more effectively.

A specialization or area of expertise will increase your choices for employment. You could still work in any of the basic paralegal roles, but with specialization, you will be more in demand among employers with particular needs
