    I also graduated from the National Center for Paralegal Training (1998) and have been working in the field since that time. Wow! I would love to network with you and share and learn from each of our experiences in this profession. Thanks for being a role model!!! I think this is great!

    Love this infographic, it is a very good way to quickly show the differences in defense and prosecution attorneys for students.

    The infographic is been an eye opener truly! One of my cousins is practicing criminal defence law at The Defence Group at Oakville. I happened to learn some of these basics already from him. But, I really feel, that expressing facts in an infographic is a better form of communication for the mind. I’m a science grad and most of the terms here are new to me. I found this blog while searching for Law universities and colleges for my younger sister. I think I’ll show her this blog. I’m sure she’s going to find it informative and realize that she’s got way to go!

    Wouldn’t My Cousin Vinny have been a defense attorney?
