How should you obtain a paralegal degree from an accredited U.S. college or university?

One of the most common and quickest ways of obtaining a certified paralegal qualification is by enrolling in an associate’s degree or certificate level course in paralegal studies. Associate’s degrees in paralegal studies usually last for around two years and are deemed sufficient to gain an entry-level job in the profession. Certificate courses on the hand take from six to twelve months to complete. For students looking to serve at senior level positions in this field should consider embarking upon an advanced level degree in paralegal studies such as bachelor’s or master’s.
