Online Paralegal Studies

Expect a Career with Jobs Available

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an 18.3% employment growth for paralegals between 2010 and 2020. Paralegals are needed in law firms, corporations, government agencies, insurance and mortgage companies, and even banks. Regardless of the legal specialization you select, Marian’s Adult Programs will prepare you to become a leader in this fast-growing field with the critical thinking, communication, and technology skills that are highly desired by employers. 

Network with the Legal Community

Attorneys and paralegals serve as adjunct faculty in our online paralegal studies program. You will have plenty of opportunities to network, so you can land that great job.

Expect to Gain Hands-on Experience

You’ll even have opportunities to participate in an internship, externship, or job shadowing experience in your area of specialization. We want you to be prepared to hit the ground running after graduation. In fact, many of our graduates have gone on to work where they’ve interned.

MAP acknowledges the firms who have generously supported and contributed to our paralegal program:
