ABA-Approved School for Paralegal Studies
San Francisco State University is pleased to announce that the American Bar Association has granted approval to the Paralegal Studies program offered by SF State Extended Learning.
Recent California legislation defines who may call himself or herself a paralegal and sets forth educational criteria for paralegals. One of the criteria is graduation from a program approved by the American Bar Association. Please refer to the section on New California Legislation on Paralegals. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
For more information on the ABA approval, please contact our program coordinator at 415.817.4244.
