Designated Learning Institution Number (DLI) #019329963492
Metropolitan Community College is fully registered with and designated by the Private Training Institution Branch (PTIB) of the Advanced Ministry of Education, British Columbia. The designation process is customarily rigorous and indepth. It represents an assurance to the public that the College has met (and continues to satisfy) the rather expansive academic and administrative oversight of the Agency.
I am delighted that you are reading this message and encourage you to take the bold step of exploring opportunities offered by our advanced paralegal program. For one thing, it offers a “running start” for aspiring lawyers, and the skill spectrum is wide. It aims to help all students discover the challenges offered by a career in the legal field. It also provides students with more than just legal facts and theories. Indeed, students will have the opportunity to study substantive, procedural and legal skills courses as they apply to Canada.
The program is unique in its delivery approach because it adopts the in-class, Socratic teaching method. Much for its advantages, the in-class lectures allow for the Socratic method of debating legal issues and reasoning. Also, students have the opportunity to: a) attend legal workshops, b) observe Supreme Court proceedings, c) conduct interactive mooting court sessions, d) visit Law Courts Library, and e) enjoy occasional lectures given by expert guests.
As the Director of Legal Studies and Consultant Criminologist, it gives me pleasure to welcome you to our learning community, and look forward to helping you realize your career aspirations.
