Paralegal Professor Interviews

Paralegal Studies Professors and Thought Leaders Interview Series

There aren’t many fields out there that you can get into with a two-year degree that allow you to wear a power suit every day and work alongside high-dollar professionals in a glass tower downtown. Fewer still where your role in supporting the work of those professionals is absolutely integral to the success of their practice. But this is exactly what you could experience by becoming a paralegal.

You didn’t get to a place in your life where you feel confident enough for this kind of job by doing things half-heartedly, and you know you’re going to need all the smarts and moxie you can muster once you get into the profession. So while you’re considering your degree options, it’s only natural that you’d want to hear from the very people that design, administer and teach these programs.

In this series, we’ll be talking to the professors and other faculty members behind the paralegal programs at the nation’s top colleges and universities. In 2017, we recognized the pre- and post-degree certificate, associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs at each one of these schools for the exceptional quality and value they offer:

Now we’re reaching out to the faculty in the legal studies departments again to ask a few questions that we think will help prospective students get a better feel for what the student experience will be like.

Join us as we bring you interviews with professors and other faculty members throughout 2018 and 2019. Check back regularly for fresh insights as we continue to update this page with new interviews.

If you’re a faculty member in a department offering degrees in paralegal studies and would like to participate, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us here.
