Legal Studies

Ohio University has partnered with The Center for Legal Studies (CLS) to bring you quality legal training in a variety of formats to fit your busy schedule. This program is the most flexible and affordable program available. Upon successful completion of the program (80% or better), you will be awarded CEUs.

Most of the online courses are completed in one 7-week online session. The paralegal course takes 14 weeks, or two 7-week sessions, to complete. Materials need to be purchased separately from The Center for Legal Studies.

Course descriptions are available on the The Center for Legal Studies website. *The text-based and digital formats are ongoing, and you may register to begin at any time.
