The Paralegal Education Group (PEG) offers interactive online review courses designed to assist the paralegal in preparing to sit for the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE) offered through the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc.

Sixty-day review courses and consist of:

  • Pre-Test Assessment
  • Organized Lesson Plans
  • Content Outlines
  • Video Lectures on each topic/domain tested
  • Unit Practice Tests
  • Final Exam with individualized faculty feedback

During the course access period, students have around-the-clock access to faculty for questions, consultations, and support. Additionally, all review students have access to the Paralegal Forums, a virtual community for students and faculty to interact and participate in discussion threads to support their studying.  

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. 

Note: The textbook that is required to assist you outside of the online materials provided in this review program is: PACE Study Manual, 7th 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. (Please order TWO weeks in advance of the course start date to allow for processing and shipping.)
