My experience with Herzing College Toronto was nothing short of amazing. After working in the "real world" for eight years after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a B.A. in Communications and a concentration in Public Relations I was a little leery about going back to school. However, I have always been very interested in law, and after moving back to Ontario I started to check out my options. Going back to school to law school for three more years was not an option for me. However, in my research I found that Licensed Paralegals in Ontario have a lot of freedom and in certain circumstances (small claims court, provincial offences, some criminal matters, landlord/tenant, etc.) Licensed Paralegals do not need to work under the supervision of a lawyer. In fact, as I continued looking into it, I came to find out that many Licensed Paralegals have offices/practices of their own. This was extremely intriguing to me. I looked into every single available option for the paralegal programs available at the different colleges in Toronto. At the end of the day, I chose Herzing based on many different reasons. I liked the fact that Herzing was a private college and that the classroom sizes were small. I also found the flexibility of start dates and class times to be very appealing. Last, but definitely not least, Herzing offers an accelerated program. So rather than putting my life on hold for two years, at Herzing I was able to complete my studies in one year. At the end of the day, my first "in person" impression of the school with an advisor and having had the opportunity to sit in on a class that day sealed the deal. My year spent at Herzing far surpasses any educational experience that I had in University. The professors are actual former lawyers, as well as practicing (and non-practicing) paralegals and so not only do they know the law, they are passionate about it. The class sizes are relatively small (I would say 15 people average) and so throughout the course of my studies I was able to seek the individual attention that I needed. Everyone on the administrative staff is friendly and very supportive. I genuinely believe that they want all of their students to be successful, which is perhaps why they have an open door policy. My education at Herzing has given me the confidence to be a successful, competent and resourceful paralegal. Once licensed by the Law Society of Upper Canada in August I feel 100% prepared to tackle the exciting world of law :)! Andrea Hawdon Paralegal Program

My experience at Herzing College was highly enjoyable and extremely rewarding! I have attended various Universities and academic environments, but this College was an academic environment that I was very unfamiliar with. Having small classes and consistent and ongoing support from each and every one of the staff members at this College, made my experience a very positive one. I believe in the saying that you get out what you put in, and the commitment I made to taking this program proved to be the best decision I have ever made for furthering my career and finding a job. I enjoyed the small class sizes and the flexibility from the staff and the instructors. I was always able to ask someone for help and was always received with a smile and an encouraging response. I had always been interested in law, and the Paralegal Program and its courses seemed great - and the fact that it was a 1 yr program WITH a mandatory Internship, was definitely a plus. The Career Development Course was incredibly beneficial for me. It showed me how and why my resume and cover letter was doing nothing for me. From the help of the career development specialists at Herzing, I gained a much better understanding about how to structure my resume and how to establish an impressive cover letter. Going back to school and making the choice to become educated, is the very best investment one can make. I was worried about financing, and I received nothing but support from the staff at Herzing who were well aware of the industry standards and price for such a Program. It was well worth it. The investment sure is paying off, because I am happily employed at a law firm and am absolutely loving what I do. I use what I learned at Herzing everyday and every minute in my job. Had I not attended Herzing College and gone through the Paralegal Program, I would not be successfully employed at an awesome law firm. Finding a job does not come easy - it takes persistence, hard work, and an optimistic attitude among other things. Herzing provided me with an experience and an extremely valuable skill set that I now feel truly confident will keep me employed for the rest of my life.

Please avoid private colleges.. they will not take you any where..plus they are 5 times costly than community colleges. I did CSW over at Herzing the lecturer was very good, since the college is not recognised and not a community college, the employers do not recognize our diploma... So, avoid these private schools, even if you are doing through 2nd career.. do not go..

I studied at this college awhile ago. The best feature of this college is the convenient location. My biggest problem with the courses is that they were significantly rushed, so that there was minimal time to truly absorb all the information. I was lucky enough to have two decent professors, although they weren't exceptional. Much of the support/administrative staff team, however, is rude and unprofessional, and provided me with incorrect information. I was promised assistance in finding a career after I finished my course, but I received no such assistance, despite my extensive correspondence. Despite my issues, I survived my experience at Herzing and managed to obtain a full-time position in my field, albeit without any assistance. Overall, I personally wouldn't recommend this school, as there are much better colleges out there.
