There are so many forums to check when shopping around, including when you are searching for the right paralegal school. You have Angie’s list for an honest plumber, consumer reports for the best computer, and thousands of different web sites and blogs. The list is endless. So were do you go to check for the best paralegal school for you? The answer lies with the graduates. Graduates are consumers who have first hand knowledge of the school and can give you honest feedback about the school, curriculum, and staff. Who better to ask, but someone who has actually gone through the program? Here is some valuable feedback from recent AIPS graduates:
From Pamela Kenniston
The AIPS staff are wonderful and very responsive to any questions, concerns or problems you may encounter. The instructors are knowledgeable and share real world experiences as it relates to the current course work. Although I am an adult learner, the online format eliminated any biases that might have occurred in a traditional classroom. If you enjoy litigation, pursuing that option is well worth the extra few months.
Taking classes to receive my paralegal certificate from AIPS was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. I thoroughly enjoyed every class that I took and would recommend the program to all those who may be interested in starting or continuing a legal career! I took the 4 month accelerated program and while this was challenging, I will say that the extra efforts were absolutely worth my time.
This was a great program. I really enjoyed having small classes with a more focused relationship between professor and student. I feel fully prepared to step into my legal career.

If you’re considering taking an online paralegal program, AIPS Distance Learning Paralegal Interactive Program offers a comprehensive course curriculum that stimulates your mind; all courses are taught by actual attorneys (which I found through my comparison of paralegal programs to be rare) who care about providing quality education, clarity in subject matter and your success. Attending AIPS was the best decision I’ve ever made!
I found all of my courses within the AIPS Paralegal Program to be very valuable and informative. I compared many paralegal programs both online and traditional classroom to that of AIPS and the deciding factor for me was that the AIPS Paralegal Program offered me a mature adult environment with instructor and student interaction.
One of the hardest things about deciding to go back to school as a mature adult was that I did not want to be in a class learning something new with a class full of young adults. AIPS eliminated that fear. I really enjoyed participating in the discussion questions with my instructor and classmates. The diversity in careers/education backgrounds and location (jurisdiction) of each student/instructor made my course work experience much more fulfilling.
