Approved by the American Bar Association
The EKU Online Paralegal Program is approved by the American Bar Association and meets the guidelines set forth by the ABA. The American Bar Association's Standing Committee on Paralegals states that its purpose in approving programs is "to foster high quality paralegal education and training and the development of educational standards." Each ABA-approved paralegal program goes through a rigorous approval process and is subject to ongoing review by ABA representatives, including periodic on-site visits and review of detailed reports submitted by the program.
Students who graduate from an ABA-approved course of paralegal studies are automatically qualified to sit for the Certified Kentucky Paralegal Exam.
