The typical entry-level paralegal holds…Paralegal With Team

  • An undergraduate certificate in paralegal studies

Or

  • An associate’s degree in paralegal studies

Or

  • An associate’s in general studies or another area along with a post-degree certificate in paralegal studies

Or

  • A certificate in paralegal studies earned concurrent with an associate’s degree in a related field

A more select group holds bachelor’s degrees in paralegal studies or a bachelor’s in another field in combination with a post-bac certificate in paralegal studies. The most elite go on to earn a graduate certificate or master’s degree.

In the 1970s, legal secretaries, legal assistants and other clerical workers in law offices often received on-the-job training that moved them into positions with a greater level of responsibility and specialized legal knowledge, establishing and defining what would come to be known as the paralegal profession. Today, on-the-job training opportunities still exist, but are now almost exclusively found in smaller law offices serving smaller more rural communities where the pool of qualified candidates is small and paralegal programs aren’t as easily accessible. Often those selected for these positions have relevant education or experience in another field. For example, a person with a degree in environmental studies might find a willing mentor in a lawyer who specializes in environmental law.

Featured Programs:

Now, with the paralegal profession firmly established and the role expanding to include tasks that were once considered the exclusive domain of attorneys, formal education is a standard prerequisite for beginning a career as a paralegal and professional experience of some kind is a major plus. In fact, it is so common for people to transition from another profession and build off of an existing undergraduate education, that post-degree certificates in paralegal studies are among the most popular and widely available options for people entering the field.

Associate’s in Paralegal Studies or Associate’s Plus Certificate…

These days you are likely to discover that potential employers state a preference for a paralegal who has two or more years of experience or who has completed an associate’s degree in paralegal studies or an associate’s in another area along with a post-degree certificate in paralegal studies at minimum.

Bachelor’s in Paralegal Studies or Bachelor’s Plus Post-Bac Certificate…

In most metro areas where major law firms have offices, entry-level paralegal jobs are competitive. You need to think of your education not only as something that will prepare you with a working knowledge of legal processes and the judicial system, but something that will give you an edge over other candidates competing for the same position.

This has made a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies or a bachelor’s degree in another field along with a post-bac certificate in paralegal studies the most common requirement with the nation’s biggest law firms and other top employers.

Advanced Degrees in Legal Studies…

For those already working in the field, advanced education can be a pathway to greater responsibility, more opportunities, and, of course, better pay.

The most ambitious paralegals choose to specialize in a particular type of law, seeking out graduate certificate or master’s degree programs to this end. Successful law offices know the value of a good paralegal and often cover the cost of earning an advanced degree or specialty certification as part of an overall compensation package.

Paralegal Program Approval and Accreditation – Selecting a Quality Program

There are currently over 1200 programs offering certificates and degrees in paralegal studies in the United States. These programs vary greatly in cost, length, course requirements, semester hours and format. Online-only programs, traditional classroom programs and hybrids of the two are available through community colleges, state schools and private universities and colleges alike. There are lots of options out there, but armed with a little knowledge about what to look for you’ll have no problem finding a program that aligns perfectly with your career goals.

Institutional Accreditation Vs Voluntary Approval

The American Bar Association (ABA) offers an elective approval process for paralegal programs that choose to participate in a voluntary review, while the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE) maintains a list of member schools that offer programs in paralegal studies. Selecting a program approved by the ABA or that meets the criteria for membership with the AAfPE comes with the assurance that the program meets high standards. The voluntary processes for gaining ABA approval or qualifying as an AAfPE-member institution is a strong indicator of a program’s rigor and quality, but these voluntary processes aren’t the only way for a program to demonstrate that it offers a high quality education and career preparation. In fact, programs that have gone through the voluntary approval process represent only a small portion of the many options available.

Verifying institutional accreditation is still the primary way of making sure you select a quality program. Accreditation is the process by which an independent accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education (DOE) and the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) reviews an institution and confirms that it meets high standards in terms of completion rates, job placement, and student loan repayment, among several other criteria. By selecting a program offered through an accredited school you can be sure that you’re going to learn under the guidance of experienced professors and qualified adjuncts, and that the certificate or degree you end up earning will be recognized and respected by the lawyers and court systems you’ll be interviewing with once you graduate.

Accreditation provided by three primary types of accrediting agencies – state, regional and national:

Regional accreditation agencies that review schools within their regional locale

  • Middle States Commission on Higher Education
  • North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Higher Learning Commission
  • Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
  • North Central Commission on Colleges and Universities
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC)
  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE)

Only New York, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma have a state-specific accreditation agency recognized by DOE and CHEA, making regional accreditation standard. Still, in some cases schools that have received accreditation through a state agency may be better recognized by law firms and other employers working within that state:

  • New York State Board of Regents
  • Oklahoma Board of Career and Technology Education
  • Pennsylvania State Board of Vocational Education

National accreditation agencies review schools located anywhere in the country, specializing in either independent private schools, exclusively online schools or two-year career schools that primarily offer certificate and associate’s degree programs:

  • Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)
  • Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC)
  • Council on Occupational Education (COE)

Selecting an Online Program

As every major public and private university, state school, and community college has embraced online learning as a way to ensure everybody has access to an affordable, high quality college education, just about every prospective student now includes online options on the list of programs they consider. Exceptional online programs are available through accredited schools, but the ABA hasn’t caught up yet and as of 2017 still does not recognize any program that offers courses mostly or completely through a distance learning platform.

This not only makes an education in paralegal studies much harder to access and afford, it limits the options in a field that otherwise provides a diverse offering of programs designed for different people in different situations, whether we’re talking recent high school grads looking for an undergrad certificate, career-changers looking to transfer credits from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s in paralegal studies, or an experienced paralegal interested in specializing in a particular area of law by earning a graduate certificate.

Paralegal Programs Available Through Accredited Schools

Note: This list shows all accredited schools offering online and on-campus paralegal programs at all levels, from undergraduate certificates to master’s degrees. Campus-based programs with programmatic accreditation through the American Bar Association are also available, however ABA-approved programs are not available online.
