My experience at Platt College as a Paralegal student was memorable. I received my Associates and Bachelor degree here. The professors in the Paralegal program are very knowledgeable and work in the field. Real stories and experiences from the professors were great to hear. I learned a lot in this program and appreciate the knowledge they gave me to succeed in my future career. I would recommend Platt College to anyone interested in this degree.
