Paralegal Studies - Undergraduate Certificate

for Online and Adult Learners

Gain a Competitive Edge with Substantive Knowledge of the Legal Field

Paralegals assist lawyers in the delivery of legal services in law offices, government agencies, and a full range of corporate and non-profit settings. Whether you are already employed in the field or just starting out, the Paralegal Certificate program will give you a theoretical understanding of the law, while you develop practical skills that are in high demand by employers.

To earn the Paralegal Certificate, you must complete a 30-credit course of study (10 courses), which can be completed online in one year. You will develop expertise in legal analysis, research, and writing, and explore specialized areas of law including torts, probate, litigation, real estate, corporate, family, and criminal law. You can begin your coursework in any of 5 terms each year.

In conjunction with your bachelor’s degree, the Paralegal Certificate will prepare you to sit for the prestigious National Certification Exam, sponsored by the National Association for Legal Assistants. The Paralegal Certificate also provides an excellent foundation for further education in business, law, or other fields where legal considerations are important.
