The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Legal & Paralegal Studies is a 30 credit hour program for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree and/or a master’s degree.  With the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Legal & Paralegal Studies, your coursework will include the law courses in which you have an interest – for instance, Estate & Probate, Contracts, Mock Trial, Tort Law, and many other extremely interesting law courses.  If you decide to attend full-time, you can actually finish the program in two semesters; however, many of our Post-Baccalaureate Certificate students attend classes on a part-time basis.

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate is fully approved by the American Bar Association. It is offered for paralegal education and provides course work and practical experiences designed to develop the knowledge and communication skills necessary for contribution to the legal profession. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law. Students must take at least nine (9) semester credits of Legal Specialty courses through synchronous classroom instruction (i.e. through traditional classroom instruction or “meeting” online through supported software such as Blackboard Collaborate or Zoom allows the instructor and students to hold virtual meetings with audio and visuals).
