Bachelor of Science Degree in Paralegal Studies

Peirce College



The bachelor's degree program in Paralegal Studies from Pierce College prepares you to work closely with attorneys, judges, prosecutors, or public defenders as a Paralegal. While attorneys assume the ultimate responsibility for legal work, they seek the assistance of paralegals in all phases of case management and trial preparation. You can also specialize in a particular area such as family law, health care, personal injury, civil litigation, corporate law, estate planning, real estate, immigration, environmental protection, civil rights and criminal law, just to name a few.

Please note Peirce requires that four foundation courses be taken in an on campus setting. These courses are not offered online, however, you can either complete these courses on Peirce's campus, or you can transfer credits for these courses from another comparable on campus program. If you are working on or have completed your associate degree from an ABA-approved program or a school that has an articulation agreement with Peirce, chances are that you have taken classes that meet the on campus requirement already!
