Courses in the Schaumburg-Online schedule are offered on Saturdays at Roosevelt's suburban Schaumburg Campus and online. Courses are offered in eight week sessions in which students take one Saturday class and one online course offering the maximum number of online courses permitted within American Bar Association Guidelines. Pursuant to ABA guidelines, students must take at least ten semester hours or the equivalent of legal specialty courses through traditional classroom instruction.

The Schaumburg Online Schedule is designed for students who work full-time. However, because of the significant amount of course work required outside of class and the shorter 8-week class sessions, some students may find the schedule too demanding. If you would like help in determining if this schedule is right for you, please feel free to contact the Paralegal Studies Program office at (312) 281-3300 or
