LSUC Paralegal Licensing Exam Preparation Workshop

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE LSUC Paralegal Licensing EXAM? This is an opportunity for you to prepare yourself, based on the LSUC’s syllabus of studies.

The purpose of this workshop is to assist our students in their preparations to successfully complete their licensing examination, which is written and administered by the Law Society of Upper Canada three times a year. 

Exam writing strategies for multiple choice exams, time management strategies, and managing exam anxiety are reviewed. We will review the substantive law competencies from your paralegal diploma program, and provided a comprehensive review of the Paralegal Rules of Conduct, Paralegal Guidelines, and LSUC by-laws.

In the second session, we will provide a timed mock exam for students to get a sense of what the licensing exam will actually entail.  While the student must still conduct their own preparation, this workshop will enable them to enter the exam with more confidence.  Many of our alumni praise this workshop for being more difficult than the actual licensing exam.

The workshop is scheduled approximately one month before the LSUC licensing exam.

Payment may be in person at the time of registration by cheque, debit, cash or credit card or over the phone by credit card.

Please contact the campus for more details.
