The Affordable Approach to Paralegal Education

The student loan debt is out of control!  The New York Times calls it A Generation Hobbled by the Soaring Cost of College.  The Detroit Free Press columnist Susan Tomper headlines her article with Student Loan Debt Threatens Graduates’ Financial Future

Where will it end?! 

Instead of figuring out where it all ends, we are going to ride a different train of thought.  A liberal arts education is wonderful, but is it essential for you?   You do not need to saddle yourself with years of student debt.  What you do need is to receive training for the job you want to perform.  What specific training is necessary for your career choice?  In this case, what specific training do you need to work as a paralegal in a meaningful and challenging law-related job?
