Are you intrigued by a career in the legal field, but don’t want to invest the added time and expense required for law school?

Do you want more value/credibility than a paralegal certificate to increase your employment prospects after graduation? -Are you looking for an undergraduate degree that’s an ideal precursor to law school?

Are you already employed, but seeking a credential that might propel you into a managerial role?

A paralegal bachelor’s degree from Northern can help you achieve any of these goals. 

Fantastic Faculty
Courses in the paralegal major are taught by a winning combination of dedicated Northern professors committed to student success and licensed attorneys. These attorneys talk the talk (helping you decipher all of that legal jargon); they also walk the walk (sharing lessons and advice based on practical experience). Who knows? That person teaching in the classroom may someday hire you as a professional colleague. 

Tools of the Trade
Northern paralegal students become acquainted with the same computer-assisted research tools used extensively in law schools and firms such as Westlaw. They also learn electronic presentation software favored by attorneys. These tools enhance Northern’s nationally recognized high-tech learning environment, where all full-time students are issued notebook computers, along with a comprehensive software package and technical support.
