The Bachelor of Science in Paralegal Studies and the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Paralegal Studies offer students an opportunity to learn if they have a sufficient interest and aptitude to pursue law school. Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Paralegal Studies who meet certain criteria have a guaranteed admission to the UT College of Law. So Paralegal Studies is an excellent "pre-law" program.



Student Testimonial:
If you are planning on attending law school, I cannot brag enough about how great the Paralegal Studies Program is at preparing its students for both the application process and for law school itself. I was accepted, with scholarships, to every single law school to which I applied, and I can confidently say that I have the Paralegal Studies Program to thank for that. During my law school application process, the schools to which I applied were consistently impressed with the Paralegal Studies program and the internships that I acquired through the program. In fact, the University of Tennesse College of Law was so impressed by the Legal Research and Writing classes required by the Paralegal Studies Program that they offered me a place in their Tennessee Law Scholars and Research Associates Program - the most prestigious scholarship program offered by the school that would have covered tuition, fees, books, and living expenses. This was only one of the many scholarship opportunities I received as a direct result of the skills I received in the Paralegal Studies Program.
