Standard Schedule

Standard course schedule: This is the Program's Schedule of Paralegal (Legal Assisting) courses. The Program offers courses each fall and winter on a standard course schedule. In other words, we offer the same LEGL courses each fall term, and the same LEGL courses each winter term. This schedule was created so that students can plan their schedules well in advance, and to accommodate the scheduling needs of a variety of students. Courses having an LEGL prefix will be scheduled as described here, but the fact that a course is scheduled does not guarantee that there will be sufficient enrollment for that class to be offered. If a course is cancelled for lack of enrollment, students should consult the Program Coordinator regarding possible substitution or transfer to another section. In the summer term, one or two LEGL courses may be offered.
