A career in law-
without law school.
What can you do with only a bachelor's degree?
Now there is a way to bridge the gap between an
undergraduate education and a challenging, respon-
sible career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do
work traditionally done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you
the skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You
choose one of the seven courses offered-choose
the city in which you want to work.
Since 1970, The Institute for Paralegal Training
has placed more than 950 graduates in law firms,
banks, and corporations in over 80 cities.
If you are a student of high academic standing
and are interested in a career as a Lawyer's Assis-
tant, we'd like to meet you.
