- Work experience.
Because the field will require you to interact with judges, lawyers and other courtroom personnel, you gain an understanding of Canadian law and how the courtroom clerk functions in civil, criminal, tribunal and family law settings.
The work experience provided in this certificate program, meanwhile, provides an opportunity to shadow professionals in a courtroom to gain practical, real courtroom knowledge. Faculty and staff in the Court Support Services program will work closely with you to maximize your shadowing experience.
If you enjoy getting your courtroom fix from TV shows, it's time to put down the remote and join the action by attending the Court Support Services program.
