Loyola University Chicago

Institute for Paralegal Studies


Admission to the Institute for Paralegal Studies occurs on a rolling basis. Students can start the program at the beginning of any eight-week session. 

View our schedule of classes.

Prospective students should begin the application process at least one month before the session begins. After all application materials have been submitted and the admission interview has been completed, an admission decision can be made. The admission decision takes 3-5 days.

What typically takes the most time for applicants, is the assembling of the application materials. Please allow yourself sufficient time to request your letters of recommendation and to order your official transcripts.

To schedule your admission interview, please contact the institute office: 312.915.6820, or paralegal@luc.edu.
