Position Yourself For Success.

Paralegal Studies at SIU Carbondale has been in existence more than 30 years, approved by the American Bar Association in 1983. At SIU, Paralegal Studies is the only undergraduate program where every teacher is a licensed attorney. In our general paralegal path, our students are specifically trained for practical performance in a professional setting to hit the ground running immediately upon graduation. Our ABA-approved bachelor degree pre-law specialization provides excellent law school preparation, covering from a practical perspective many of the same courses a law student will encounter in law school. We get tremendous feedback from our graduates who consistently report they have an advantage over other law students. In today's competitive legal market, every edge is a blessing.
