    Capital University Law School's Paralegal Program, in cooperation with the Capital University School of Nursing, offers a Legal Nurse Consulting Program (LNC) for experienced registered nurses who are looking for an opportunity to use their medical expertise as a member of a legal team. The program is designed for individuals who work full-time, or have other responsibilities during the day.

    Classes for the Legal Nurse Consulting Program will be held on the first weekend of every month throughout the 10 months of the course.

    Capital University is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Law School is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools.

    The Capital University Law School Paralegal Program and the Legal Nurse Consultant Program are both approved by the American Bar Association and hold membership in the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC).

    Permission of the Paralegal Programs Executive Director is required to transfer any required or elective courses into the paralegal, LNC, or LCP programs. In the paralegal and LNC programs, only courses from an ABA approved program are transferable; up to a maximum of 9 semester credit hours as transfer credits will be allowed. In the LCP program, only courses from an accredited college or university and ICHCC approved program are transferable to a maximum of 4 semester credit hours as transfer credits will be allowed.

    It should be noted that completion of the legal nurse consultant program authorizes the graduate to work under the direct supervision of an attorney; it does not authorize the graduate to offer legal advice, provide legal services directly to the general public, nor engage in the practice of law.
