Drury’s paralegal program continues to rank among best in nation

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., February 12, 2018 — Drury University’s Associate of Science in Paralegal Studies program has once again been ranked among the best online programs in the country for its value, quality and convenience. In a national study, Open Education Database has ranked Drury’s program as the third best online paralegal degree of 2018. This ranking follows another byTheBestSchools.org, which recently listed Drury at fourth in its list of best online paralegal programs.

The program is offered through Drury’s College of Continuing Professional Studies and can be completed entirely online. By providing a conceptual appreciation for the essential principles, doctrines, rules and structural elements required for the practice of law, the degree provides a strong basis for paralegals seeking employment in a wide variety of legal practices.

Open Education Database praises programs like Drury’s for “allowing students to complete their degree in less time and at a lower cost than traditional options.” Both rankings websites acknowledged Drury’s program for balancing classroom learning with real-world experience. As part of their education, Drury students participate in a law practicum internship with a practicing attorney.

Job prospects for paralegal degree seekers are promising. The paralegal profession has been growing steadily and continues to accelerate as companies seek to employ more paralegals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, paralegal and legal assistant jobs are expected to grow by 15 percent through 2026, more than twice as fast as the average for all occupations.
