Legal Studies Programs

Delaware Law School has offered legal studies programs for more than twenty-five years, meeting the demands of the tri-state area for qualified legal professionals. A career as a paralegal can be as satisfying as a career as a lawyer, and it can be achieved in just a fraction of the time and cost.  With a similarly advanced understanding of the legal system, paralegals assume much of a lawyer’s workload and play a critical role in the delivery of legal services.

Widener University’s Delaware Law School’s legal studies programs, which are approved by the American Bar Association, offer students the choice of an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies or a Paralegal Certificate. (The latter can be acquired in just one summer and can be used to jumpstart a legal career in the fall.)

“A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training, or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency, or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.”
