Paralegal Schools in Georgia

The body of knowledge required to effectively perform legal support services can only come from a formal education in paralegal studies. As attorneys, corporations and government agencies work within an increasingly complex legal framework, the level of responsibility they expect paralegals to be able to take on has also increased. Law offices and other employers in Georgia have come to rely on paralegals with the kind of expertise that can only come from earning a certificate or degree in paralegal studies.

No matter where you are in planning your paralegal career, picking a school is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever have to make… Maybe you’re in the early stages of planning, still daydreaming about walking through the marble-floored lobby of one of Atlanta’s big dog firms and being welcomed onboard as the newest addition to their paralegal staff… Maybe you’re ready to advance and after years of walking through that grand lobby you’re more focused than ever on how you can take your career to the next level.

Whether you’re looking to get your foot in the door with an associate’s or certificate in paralegal studies, looking to advance in your current position by finally completing your bachelor’s, or if you’re ready to specialize through graduate work, you’re going to need some help selecting a quality program.

To help simplify the task, we put together a list of our favorite picks. All of these schools have a presence in Georgia or offer their programs online. In making our selection, we only looked at programs that are either regionally or nationally accredited.
