Curriculum & Course Details

Each Paralegal Specialist program will consist of four courses: three required and one elective. Students must complete the minimum number of courses in order to earn the certificate. Exemptions for previous course work will not be granted. If a student elects to specialize in more than one area and there is duplication in courses, substitutions will be made so that a student still takes the minimum number of courses required without having to repeat any course.

Textbooks must be purchased separately for each course. The information for ordering textbooks will be provided to students once they are registered. The total cost of books is estimated at $45 - $200 per book. Hard copies, e-books, and, in some cases, used books are available for purchase.

Program Components

  • Two assignments and a final exam per course
  • Interactive e-lectures, review questions, and quizzes
  • Accessibility to instructor
