Become a Legal Tech
Are you ready to gain some serious legal knowledge from some of Washington's most prestigious Family Law educators, and use it to help others?
It's easy! OK, not exactly easy, but it is completely doable, and can be accomplished without going to school full time during the day. It may take a little longer going part-time and/or evenings, but the program is designed for those who work during the day or care for loved ones, so you can successfully complete the educational requirements.
In a nutshell, here are the requirements, including classes and exams you'll take on your way to becoming a Limited License Legal Technician, or LLLT:
2 year college degree, an associate's or higher
45 core curriculum credits at an approved paralegal program
1 paralegal exam
3 quarters of practice area curriculum at UW School of Law
1 WSBA licensing exam - practice area and ethics
3,000 hours of substantive legal work, supervised by an attorney
See, that's not all that much to do. And most paralegal programs offer the majority of their classes online. The practice area classes are via webcast, so you can be anywhere with a web connection to take them. Check out WSBA.org's website for full details and the most up to date information.
