Colorado Paralegal Requirements & Resources
Becoming a Paralegal in Colorado
Like most states, the State of Colorado does not place any education or certification requirements on those seeking to become a paralegal. Prospective paralegals may become a paralegal through on-the-job training opportunities or by pursuing a certificate program, an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree.
