An academic degree program
George Washington University’s Graduate Certificate and Master’s degree in Paralegal Studies are Washington, DC’s only academic-credit bearing paralegal studies credentials.
This means that when you enroll in either of these GW Paralegal Studies programs you qualify for military benefits, federal financial aid, and in earning one you become eligible for salary increases, promotions, and a higher GS level.
The confidence to succeed
When you join the most selective program in Washington, DC you join a community of learners and gain access to alumni networks, dedicated career resources, employment opportunities, learning tools, mentorship, and support.
The skills the market demands
The legal market is competitive and getting more so1. GW gives you the skills employers demand so you can distinguish yourself: written and oral communication, complex task management, legal research, and leadership.
Nontraditional students: we get it
Many of our students are returning to school after years of working at other careers, raising families, or serving in the military. Their needs are different from traditional students’ needs and we get that. We accommodate our students’ unique needs and learning styles.
With classes running throughout the academic year, day or evening, on-campus and online, you have options.
GW’s students services and career services offices offer resources to help you succeed at GW and in your career.
Commencement on the National Mall
