Paralegal Studies

Property law. Bankruptcy. Consumer affairs. Juvenile cases. It takes a lot of dedication to understand the nuances of a single topic of law, let alone several. With a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from Webster University you’ll gain exposure to these areas and many more.

Our program is designed to provide the theoretical and practical education you need to assist lawyers as a paralegal in a law firm, corporation or governmental agency. We emphasize a strong foundation based in legal research and writing. The American Bar Association has even approved our paralegal programs.

It is important to note that, at present, there is no state or federal licensure of paralegals, and that successful completion of Webster’s certificate program should not be construed to imply state, federal or board certification. Also, paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.

If legal policy is intriguing to you and you’re a driven and organized professional, a paralegal career might be in your future. Request more information to see all of the areas of law we cover.
