PEG PACEĀ® Review Course

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc., (NFPA) and the Paralegal Education Group (PEG) are pleased to offer an online review course for the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE). 

This eight-week online review course is designed to assist the paralegal/legal assistant in preparing to sit for the PACE.  In this course, the student will receive unlimited access to all of the course materials, which consist of video lectures, content outlines, virtual classroom sessions, and hundreds of practice exam questions with interactive feedback & assessment. 

The course materials cover all of the major topics tested on the examination: (1) Administration of Client Legal Matters; (2) Development of Client Legal Matters; (3) Factual and Legal Research; (4) Factual and Legal Writing; and (5) Office Administration.  There also units devoted to ethics and substantive areas of law, which are tested throughout the examination. 

During the program, students will have around the clock access to the PEG paralegal faculty for additional support, questions, and individualized consultations. 

Note:  The textbook that is required to assist you outside of the online materials provided in this review program is: PACE Study Manual, 6th Edition

It is the obligation of the student to ensure they meet the eligibility requirements of the exam.  The PEG review course tuition fee does not register you to take PACE.
