As demand for skilled paralegals continues to increase, the Graduate, International, Compliance, and Legal Studies Office at Delaware Law offers both associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs in legal studies. Taught by our distinguished faculty who contribute their diverse experience and in-depth knowledge, both ABA-approved programs provide an excellent preparation for the paralegal profession.
The legal studies program is conveniently offered in an online format. The ABA requires students to take at least nine semester credits or the equivalent of legal specialty courses through synchronous instruction. We meet this requirement through live online class sessions. Remaining credits may be taken asynchronously.
Synchronous learning runs in real time, with students attending online at the same time as the professor from different locations. The asynchronous format is with students accessing online course materials during different hours at their convenience without live attendance online at the same time as others.
Students who have already achieved college credits elsewhere may apply to complete their degree at Delaware Law’s Legal Studies Programs as a transfer student. We provide individual attention to each new student and one of our advisors will work with you to help you understand the transfer process. Learn more about the transfer process.
