Term Calendar - Program Format

Flexibility To Fit Your Life

Depending on the other demands you face, you may opt for an accelerated schedule and complete the general certificate through part-time evening study. If you desire a more moderate pace, you may want to enroll in only one course per term. On the other hand, if your schedule allows, you may earn a general certificate by completing ten courses in twelve weeks during a summer of full-time study. As you would expect, choosing to concentrate in a practice area may require additional time for completion.


There are four terms each year: fall, winter, spring and summer.  During the fall, winter and spring terms, classes are offered in the evening.  Each class meets for eleven weeks.

  • 5:30-8:30 p.m.
  • One evening per week

Fall Term: September-November
Winter Term: January-March
Spring Term: April-June
Summer Term: June-August

2014-2015 Schedule

The Summer Paralegal Program 

June - August

 Each year, a small and select group of students embark on a 12-week adventure during which they will complete ten (10) courses and by the end of which they will receive a paralegal certificate.  The intensive summer program is a daytime program in which classes are held Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The courses are offered each summer are:

(501) Introduction to Legal System and Paralegalism
(550) Legal Research Methods
(551) Legal Writing and Case Analysis I
(552) Legal Writing and Case Analysis II
(505) Professional Responsibility and Paralegal Practice
(510) Civil Litigation I
(511) Commercial Contract Law
(515) Real Estate Law
(524) Corporate and Business Law I
(544) Litigation Technology I

Apply Early!:  Because there are limited seats available-and because this is such a popular option-students interested in enrolling in the summer program are urged to apply early.
