Preparing ABA Certified Professionals

Paralegal

The opportunities for accomplished and technically-savvy paralegals have increased due to economic and technological changes. Our program has kept pace.

How You'll Do It

Our program stays ahead of industry changes because our courses are taught by sitting judges and practicing lawyers. Using their knowledge and experience ensures everything you learn applies to the professional world. You won't just study books on how the law works. You will learn it directly from the men and women who are practicing it.

Because of that, we deliver a program that puts you in the best position to pursue a successful career as a paralegal in legal, corporate, non-profit, or government organizations. Many of our graduates continue to law school.

Well-Rounded Students

Paralegals work in a variety of law offices. Therefore, our paralegal students receive education in many different facets of substantive law, including litigation, criminal law, legal databases and alternative dispute resolution in order to develop well-rounded legal professionals capable of succeeding in any field.

Accreditation

In 1998, our Paralegal Studies program was approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). Our ABA approved program signals to employers you have the skills necessary to be an effective professional.
