He did well and was accepted as a mature student at the University of Alberta. He excelled at History, earned a number of scholarships including to study in abroad and completed his Bachelor degree in History with Honours. Paul was accepted to law school, completing his law degree at the U of A. He developed an interest in legal ethics, the history of morality and criminal law, all of which drew him to a career in criminal defence. By 2008 Paul established his own firm, Acumen Law Corporation which to date has trained 21 lawyers – articled students who have completed their studies with Paul and his firm.
