Paralegal Schools in Missouri

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 Missouri have come to rely on paralegals with the kind of expertise that can only come from earning a certificate or degree in paralegal studies.

The Missouri Courts official government website representing the state’s entire judicial branch – everything from municipal courts to the state Supreme Court – released a 69-page document called Significant Missouri Law Distinctions. This document lists 11 areas – ranging from administrative law and evidence to family law and estates – in which Missouri law differs substantially from other state and federal laws. In the era of national universities offering distance learning programs, you better believe that some of the best options are available online.

We’ve put together some recommendations. Here you’ll find degree and certificate programs designed for paralegals at all stages in their professional development, whether you’re fresh out of high school, changing careers, or an experienced paralegal looking to advance and specialize.
