FORGE your personal path to success with CLS!

Since we began offering our law classes in 1980, we have found that there are three categories of backgrounds of entering students.

First, there are those who take our courses to learn a new profession and these students comprise the greatest proportion of our student population.

Second, many students are working in the legal field and need the additional training that our courses provide. Finally, a few people enroll to keep up with the latest changes in the law and perhaps to make sure that they understand the nuances underlying televised trials.

Those students seeking the education necessary to procure their first job in law often graduate and work as Paralegals, Legal Nurse Consultants, legal consultants, legal assistants, investigators, mediators, teachers, clerks, title examiners, abstractors, researchers, claims adjusters, appraisers, examiners, health and safety specialists, technicians, and many other specialties.

These are also entry level law jobs that many of our graduates pursue who wish to ultimately become lawyers and judges.

Many students seeking college entry exam help also know CLS is a sure bet with standardized test preparation courses including the hugely popular For Dummies® books by Scott and Lisa Hatch.

Many people take CLS courses for reasons including their related profession, related personal law cases, and personal application to common law.
