All of your coursework for the Bachelor of Science in Paralegal Studies is completed online and taught by practicing attorneys.

Our online paralegal studies bachelor’s program is approved by the American Bar Association. Paralegal education programs that are approved by the ABA have gone that extra mile toward providing a consistent high standard of learning in the paralegal field. Not only do they need to meet defined, demanding standards for ABA approval; they need to be reapproved by the ABA on a regular basis to maintain their ABA-approved status.
In addition to our online Bachelor of Science in Paralegal studies degree, the University of Cincinnati also offers an Associate’s in Paralegal Studies and a post degree paralegal studies certificate.

Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
