Legal Studies | Ohio University

Ohio University Regional Higher Education 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.

Bringing the power of legal knowledge to everyone

Career advancement or development

Legal studies can take you far beyond a base understanding of the law, and offer you a deeper and broader education. CLS by BARBRI provides training and courses at multiple levels across industries so no matter where you seek career development and advancement, you can find it with OHIO. 

Flexibility meets affordability

You have a job and simply need some additional education on the law as it pertains to that job. Or, you want a career as a legal support professional, but don’t have the financial wherewithal to quit your current job and get education and training full-time. That doesn’t mean you can’t get the education you desire at a price you can afford. We meet you right where you are, offering flexibility in class scheduling to accommodate other obligations and a pricing structure that won’t price you out of career advancement.
