KCPA does not endorse any one paralegal program. Selecting a program is a personal choice but considering the following aspects may help you arrive at your decision:

  • Who are the instructors? Many programs have instructors that are practicing attorneys.
  • What is the typical class size?
  • Is this a degree or certificate program?
  • Are my paralegal courses transferable to other universities?
  • Is the program approved by the American Bar Association?
  • How many credit hours are required to complete?
  • What is the total cost?
  • Does the school offer financial aid?
  • What are the statistics of the alumni?
