There is no law that prohibits this. That is, a person with a felony criminal record can attend school and become a paralegal.

However...can the get a job?

That is a different question. Frankly, it depends on many factors, including how long ago the criminal offenses were, how well the person did in school, how well they present in an interview.

Certainly it will be difficult for this person to get a job in a law office, with the extensive criminal record you are describing. But perhaps not impossible
