Loyola University Chicago

Institute for Paralegal Studies


Our schedules are formatted to be flexible with working adult students in mind.  Paralegal classes meet either In-person, Online, or in a Blended format.  Evening classes are held from 6–9 p.m. and day classes from 9 a.m.–noon at Loyola's Water Tower Campus. Students are able to begin the program during any of the five 8-week sessions offered each year. The schedules below include the courses offered for the entire Academic Year as well as more detailed semester schedules.

The Fast-Track program begins each Spring in January.  Students can complete the Litigation Practice Certificate in one year by taking only Saturday and online courses.  Fast-Track courses are open to any student in the program and can be combined with weekday classes as well.  Please see the Fast-Track schedule below for more details.
