Top Pre Law & Legal Studies Bachelor's Degree Programs Online

Legal studies degrees – which include both legal degree and paralegal degree programs – can qualify you for work in a variety of law specialties. Bachelor’s degrees for the legal profession are usually taken in pre-law or political science, as these are typically considered the best educational foundations for a law career. In order to become an attorney, you must earn your Juris Doctor (JD) professional degree after completing work on your bachelor’s. In the paralegal profession, a Bachelor’s degree in Paralegal Studies is now becoming the standard.

Earn Your Bachelors Law Degree Online

Because online legal studies degrees provide the opportunity to start or advance your legal career while continuing to work full-time, they are becoming more and more common. For example, working on your Bachelor’s in Pre-Law online allows you to work full-time – perhaps in a related field like legal secretary – while taking your law courses in the evening. Completing a legal or paralegal bachelor’s program presents you with financial advantages too; the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that holding a bachelor’s degree means earning up to $18,000 more annually than someone with only a high school diploma.

Sample Degree – Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Pre-Law Studies

This four-year liberal arts program is intended to prepare students to pursue their Juris Doctor (JD) professional degree at an accredited law school. Though a BA in Pre-Law does not usually qualify you for any particular job, graduates often find part-time work at law firms while studying for their law degree.
