Typically, a real estate paralegal resume will include a minimum of an associate degree. An ABA paralegal
certification and/or bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies is a plus. A paralegal's education should cover
legal terminology, documents, and practices. Graduates should be able to understand the basics of a career
in law and real estate paralegal jobs.
Although formal education with certifications and degrees is desirable and often required, some firms work
with highly motivated individuals with minimum education. This on-the-job training becomes experience that
they can list on a resume in the future.
