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.
You live your life with purpose, make a real difference in people’s lives and thrive in your career.1
The GW paralegal studies programs help you to 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 GW paralegal studies programs enroll top students who want to work hard, challenge themselves and their colleagues, and join a network of peers who will lead the profession.
The GW curriculum is rigorous and balances analysis and critical thinking with applied skills.
GW focuses on the skills employers demand: writing, presenting, doing research, and managing complex tasks and teams.
Flexible. Manageable. Practical.
GW offers two credentials: an 18-credit graduate certificate and a 32-credit master’s degree. Finish the graduate certificate in two semesters and the master’s in four. If you choose, you can apply the graduate certificate credits to the master’s.
For some people, being good enough isn’t good enough.
The graduate certificate is the industry standard credential that employers throughout America accept as a condition of employment. The GW graduate certificate is recognized as one of the best. The master’s is an advanced credential for those who wish to move ahead and lead the profession.
GW is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
