Law & Paralegal Studies
You can't practice law or give legal advice with an undergraduate degree in law. Only licensed attorneys can perform these functions. If you're interested in law school, you should major in a subject that interests you. Many law school applicants major in the social sciences, sciences, humanities, or arts; or in business.
Suffolk offers these programs for undergraduate students:
- Bachelor's degree in Law
- Associate's degree in Paralegal Studies
- Certificate in Paralegal Studies
Our undergraduate law programs are intended as legal employment credentials. They'll prepare you to work as a paralegal in a law office, corporate office, government agency, or other offices working with the law. You can even work while you're in school: We offer day and evening courses, giving you the option to take classes at the times that suit you best. You'll also have access to the world-class library at Suffolk University Law School.
Suffolk graduates work in small, medium, and large law firms, corporations, insurance companies, state and federal agencies, and a variety of other law-related institutions. While these programs are not designed primarily to be pre-law, some alumni do go on to attend law school. Other graduates have pursued advanced degrees in communication , criminal justice, and other fields.
