Program Suspended

If you are looking to further your education in the field of legal administration or office administration you may be interested in our Paralegal, Office Administration – General or Office Administration – Executive diploma programs or our Law Clerk Advanced advanced diploma program.

To ensure we are providing our students with the most up-to-date and innovative training, our programs respond to industry and student needs. Students can enter a program knowing that it has been carefully designed by Durham College and leading employers to ensure they are gaining the skills and knowledge needed to start a successful career. In order to ensure program viability and student success, a robust cohort of students is required to deliver a post-secondary program. After careful consideration, the decision was made to suspend the Office Administration – Legal program due to the low number of applications received.
