Legal administrative assistant

VCC's five-month legal administrative assistant program is open to candidates with previous office administrative assistant work experience or education.

This intensive program will give you the legal knowledge that you need to step into a law office and work as an assistant to a lawyer. Our courses cover the largest areas of law, including civil litigation, family law, corporate procedures, wills and estates, and conveyancing. We use the most up-to-date computing equipment and specialized legal software.

Our graduates are at work in firms across the city, including Faskens, Miller Thomson and McCarthy Tetrault as well as at the Department of Justice and at several B.C. court registries.

Join us at VCC’s Downtown campus, 200-block Dunsmuir at Hamilton, two blocks west of the Stadium SkyTrain station. 

The first half hour is dedicated to a program presentation and Q&A session, then a free keyboarding assessment is available.
