Other Information

It is not recommended that students enrolled in the full-time day schedule have a job while in the program, with the exception of a part-time job or internship, requiring no more than 10-15 hours per week. There is a significant amount of course work required outside of class and the classes move very quickly. The full-time day schedule is designed for individuals who intend to devote themselves almost exclusively to the work in the program during the 4 and ½ month time frame.

It is possible to take classes during the day on a part-time basis. Please indicate that you wish to do so on your application form and feel to contact the Paralegal Studies Program office at 312-281-3300 or clausen@roosevelt.edu if you would like more information on this option.

Courses are held at Roosevelt University’s Gage Building Campus, 18 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL  60603.
