Rio Salado has added three new electives to its online paralegal program. The classes include environmental law, immigration law, and legal investigation

A class in e-discovery is coming soon. These classes will offer students more specialized course content that is socially relevant and can help established paralegals meet continuing legal education requirements.

“The new class options provide students with areas of interest to explore and may help them focus their career paths,” said Angela Kwan, Rio Salado’s faculty chair for Administration of Justice Studies and Paralegal.

Rio’s curriculum prepares students for the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) certification exam.


Classes focus on fundamental skills such as legal research, writing and analysis, IRAC writing, Bluebook legal citation and Westlaw training.
