Paralegal Studies

In association with The GW Law School

Classes held at our Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA campuses and online.

Passion. Ambition. Purpose.

You have a passion for the law and the ambition to pursue that passion at one of the finest institutions in the nation: The George Washington University.

For some people, good enough isn't good enough.

You live your life with purpose, make a real difference in people’s lives and thrive in your career.1

Pursue your passion, accomplish your goals, and make a difference by preparing you for one of the fastest growing professions in America.2

Selective. Rigorous. Relevant.

The highly selective GW paralegal studies program focuses on the skills employers demand: written and oral communication, research, and complex task management.

Flexible. Manageable. Practical.

Whatever your schedule, GW has a program to suit you.

Attend evening classes in Washington, DC or Alexandria, Virginia or fully online. Earn the 18-credit graduate certificate in two semesters or in one summer at the GW Summer Academy. Earn the 32-credit master's degree in four semesters.
