“Saskatoon Business College introduced me to the legal world through the Legal Administrative Assistants Program. I had no exposure to lawyers or law firms but thought I might be interested in law. SBC trained me in the procedures of law, enabling me to work as an assistant for many years before going to law school to become a lawyer. Being a legal assistant first has given me a greater understanding in the office, and I am able to provide better service to the client. I continue to use the skills gained when I was there. Thank you.”
