Did you know that the average cost of a law degree is $37,000 to $45,000 per year*. Paralegals, e-Discovery professionals, Legal Nurse Consultants are among the many law-related career paths offering explosive job growth—and they don’t require a law degree!  

The School of Extended Learning at Governors State University can help you prepare for your dream job, at a fraction of the cost.  

We are excited to partner with The Center for Legal Studies (CLS) to bring you career-ready courses and certificate options in a flexible online format. The opportunities to hone your focus in law are endless, from estate-planning to family law, civil liberties, water law, victim advocacy, and more.
