Hear from our leading faculty.
The program is designed to introduce students to things that are going on right now. Professors adapt the content in their courses each semester so that when students finish the program, they know the hot issues and trends. There’s a lot of focus on being able to do research in a general sense, but also in growing areas like Intellectual Property. The program provides students an excellent foundation in relevant, current themes so they can pursue any area of law that fascinates them.
This is such a unique program because the levels of background and experience are so different; we have people who’ve been in the industry for a while and then we have people who are breaking in. The kind of interaction that I see take place in the online chat sessions – where some of the experienced paralegals are helping out some of the newbies – is amazing and creates such a nice community.
Everybody joins this program because they have a passion for the law; they all join because they love the law, they want to serve people, they want to serve the law, they want to do good. To professionals considering enrolling in GW’s online Paralegal Studies program, I would say keep that passion, because it will serve you well as you go on and succeed, and really lead the profession.
