Loyola University Chicago

Institute for Paralegal Studies

ABA Approved Certificates

The American Bar Association considers well-educated paralegals to be essential to the practice of law.

Only 200 programs in the entire country have satisfied the ABA’s rigorous guidelines to earn approval. ABA approval indicates the program’s curriculum, faculty, resources, and student services have met high standards of quality.

Legal employers look for graduates of ABA-approved paralegal programs to ensure that their education has prepared them properly.

Loyola’s Institute for Paralegal Studies has been approved for over two decades.
