It has been a great experience at Cestar College – Paralegal Program. This is truly an amazing college, with very knowledgeable teachers with a lifetime of experience that they were willing to share. Some of our teachers were a Justice Of The Peace, Police Officer, Prosecutor, Lawyer, and guest speakers currently practicing in the field. A small classroom environment allowed students to be completely engaged in the lectures and ask questions as necessary. If you are looking to study for a Paralegal, this college is really on point.

I have been to a number of colleges to compare their Paralegal programs and Cestar really stood out as they have hands-on experienced instructors, caring student services, and a very knowledgeable and professional School Director, Adrian Sharma. I was at first a little nervous but after meeting with Adrian he assured me that I was doing the right thing in researching other schools. I felt very comfortable after the meeting with Adrian and now feel confident I made the right choice in selecting Cestar College for their amazing Paralegal program. Also, Cestar does 100% coop placements and the students find work right after their graduation. This will differentiate me from the rest of the paralegals graduating from other colleges — I highly recommend Cestar College. I signed up right on the spot with Adrian Sharma and I am very excited about starting the program. You don’t need to look any further when it comes to Cestar’s paralegal program.
