Help make law and order happen with a bachelor's degree in legal studies.

Law offices can be great places to work. Not only do they offer many opportunities for steady, long-term employment, legal professionals help people solve problems. As a paralegal, you do not need to go to law school to start a career working in one.

Our bachelor’s degree program in legal studies is designed to help you learn the skills you need to start a career as a paralegal. Paralegals cannot directly provide legal services to the public, but they work with attorneys and are assigned such tasks as interviewing witnesses, drafting legal documents, conducting research, preparing memoranda, assisting in court, and more. As a student in this program, you’ll be learning from legal professionals who know exactly what skills you’ll need to succeed on the job.

Many interesting new career opportunities will be available to you, exposing you to various areas of law and diverse legal settings. Paralegals can work in law offices, legal departments of corporations, courts, or government agencies. With a bachelor’s degree, you will be able to take your career in exciting directions.

The first case we worked on was a multi-million dollar case and it was really cool to participate in the discovery process. We have learned so much! I am so happy with my decision to go to Baker for my education. It has taken me so far in such a short amount of time. I owe so much of my success to my teachers! Thank you for everything! I cannot say enough good things about my experience!
