Students enrolled in Algonquin College’s paralegal program are exposed to several practice-oriented educational tools, which now includes uLawPractice, a powerful automated legal accounting and practice management suite.
In August, Algonquin College began collaborating with uLaw to outfit its paralegal program with uLaw’s EDU environment. Faculty can use the software to monitor a student’s production of accurate books and records in areas related to legal accounting, practice management, and audit preparation.
All of these practice-management duties are highly important for legal practitioners, particularly paralegals, who will be subject to thorough auditing standards during their professional careers. The collaboration will provide Algonquin students with access to uLawPractice through 2025.

“Algonquin College has always been at the forefront of cutting edge technologies. As a software company, we’ve always known this; so it’s an honour for our flagship legal accounting and practice management program to be taught at such an important institution. We’re proud to be helping the next generation of legal professionals along with educators at Algonquin!” said uLaw CEO Terry Curtis. “Amidst the pandemic, remote learning strategies are pivotal to post-secondary education – and we are happy to deliver this opportunity to students.”
“Algonquin College strives to be a leader in personalized, flexible learning and this collaboration with uLaw will offer our paralegal students with an innovative, new, digital-learning platform,” said Tamra Alexander, Paralegal Program Coordinator, Algonquin College.
