Online CP Knowledge Exam Prep Course
Certified Paralegal Knowledge Exam Prep Course
The Certified Paralegal examination offered by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) consists of two sections: The Knowledge Exam and The Skills Exam.
The Knowledge Exam utilizes objective questions to test substantive knowledge of the law and is offered year-round on demand. Successful completion of The Knowledge Exam is required to take the Skills Exam.
The Skills Exam measures writing proficiency through the use of an assignment that must be completed within two hours. The Skills Exam is offered during four test windows in February, April, July, and October.
The Certified Paralegal examination is nationally recognized and is acknowledged by the legal community as a sign of professionalism and competence. FAU offers online prep courses for both sections of the exam.
Registration for this Review Course does not automatically register you to take the Knowledge Exam. It is the obligation of the candidates to ensure they meet the eligibility requirements to sit for the exam and comply with all application deadlines.
