We Proudly Present Paralegal Graduate Candida Aguilar
DATE On October 14, 2021

“The key to success is hard work and determination.” When she enrolled in Rockford Career College's paralegal studies program, Candida Aguilar did not worry that the courses would be too challenging. She knew that perseverance and a strong work ethic would allow her to achieve her educational and professional goals. All of us at RCC are so proud of Candida for graduating and beginning the career she truly wanted and deserved. 

What You Learn in a Paralegal Studies Program

For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Candida took courses such as: The Legal System and Terminology, Evidence, and Contract Law. 

In these courses, she learned about:

  • The basics of the law, legal profession, and role of the paralegal; various areas of law and their required elements; and legal terminology
  • Evidentiary law, with focus on the role, gathering, and types of evidence; the concepts of admissibility, relevancy, competency, and credibility; and specific evidentiary rules and their exceptions
  • Contract law, concentrating on types of contracts, contract formation, capacity to contract, contract legality, contract performance, discharge, and contract elements; breach of contract, remedies for breach, and the defenses to these claims; and Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and statutory regulation of contracts

These courses, coupled with a paralegal externship/capstone, allowed Candida to effectively prepare for her future as a paralegal.
