Students may elect a minor in paralegal studies as they work toward a bachelor’s degree in another field. Students who choose this option do not receive a Certificate in Paralegal Studies. If they wish to earn a certificate, they may pursue a double major or complete a post-baccalaureate certificate after graduation. The minor does not constitute a program option under ABA guidelines. It is not designed to educate the student to work as a paralegal, and is not approved by the American Bar Association.
