Notes from the Paralegal Program Director, Sally Dahlquist, J.D. – sdahlquist@inverhill.edu

Students must assess into ENG 1108 in order to take PA 1102 – Introduction to Law and Contracts and PA 1105 – Criminal Justice System.

It is strongly recommended that students take:
Eng 1108 prior to PA 1102 – Introduction to Law and Contracts & PA 1105 – Criminal Justice System, and a mixture of 1/2 paralegal and 1/2 liberal arts courses each semester.

A Paralegal required course is available during the evening for 1 night a week for a 16-week semester.

Summer paralegal courses are hybrid with 1 night a week for 8 weeks.

All courses are held on campus at Inver Hills or hybrid with classes every other week on campus during the semester or online with an orientation on campus.

*It is recommended that students take only one(1) paralegal class during the summer along with one (1) liberal arts class if needed for financial aid purposes.

**Students are to obtain the program director’s written approval one semester in advance of registration for Paralegal Internship by attending the required internship meetings. Check the Paralegal Events page for dates and times.

It is recommended that PA 2289 (Paralegal Internship) be taken after all Paralegal Program specialty classes are completed. However, PA 2289 may be taken concurrently with two (2) other paralegal specialty classes if the program director concurs.
