The Community for Accredited Online Schools has ranked Eastern Kentucky University’s online paralegal studies program No. 40 on their list of “Best Paralegal Schools” among 4-year institutions. EKU was the highest rated Kentucky school on the list.
The laws of Kentucky and other states prohibit paralegals from engaging in the practice of law or providing legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law. Therefore, completion of a major, minor, or certificate in Paralegal Studies/Sciences does not entitle one to practice law, provide legal services directly to the public, or render legal advice, except as provided by law.
