    Online post-baccalaureate for legal studies?

    I know that what I'm looking for may not even be out there, but I'd be remiss not to at least try!

    I'm trying to find a post-baccalaureate certificate in legal studies (I'd like to work as a legal assistant /paralegal ). ABA is not important, but it must be 100% online and the school must be regionally accredited.

    Does such a thing exist? If not I guess I'll be choosing between an undergrad certificate or a second bachelor's, if I can find the funds. I am not interested in JD. Thanks in advance!

    He who lets the world, or his own portion of it, choose his plan of life for him, has no need of any other faculty than the ape-like one of imitation.

    I'm definitely interested in the Kaplan program as it looks like the EKU certificate has a partial residency requirement that would be near impossible for me to work out as a single mother. However I am concerned that there may be some bias against Kaplan graduates when looking for a job - when I try to search for reviews of the program I am finding a lot of reviews that say Kaplan grads are not considered as seriously as grads from traditional, brick & mortar schools. This is the only con I can find to the program. Does anyone have experience or insight to share in regard to perceived bias?
