Field Placement - Ctap

The field placement component is an experiential learning opportunity that enables students to practise and integrate the skills and knowledge acquired in their Paralegal program. Prior to commencing placement, students must successfully complete a mandatory online preparation module comprised of readings, reflections, and peer discussions, as well as any pre-placement paperwork requirements. Following the clinic, students must successfully complete (120 hours) of field placement within the timeline outlined by the college. The field placement host must be a licensed paralegal or lawyer, in accordance with the requirements set out by the Law Society of Ontario, and must oversee and evaluate the student's field placement. Student placements may occur in Durham Region or outside of the area.
