College of DuPage
Did you know that the College of DuPage’s Paralegal Studies Program was ABA-approved in August 2010? Approximately 170 students have graduated since we first began offering paralegal classes in Fall, 2006.

We would like to hear from you! We want to learn how you and other lawyers in our community are currently using paralegals. This helps us comply with ABA guidelines regarding program assessment, and, of equal importance, helps us improve our program to better meet your needs.

You can help us by taking a few minutes to complete the brief survey asking about your use of paralegals in your law practice. Please respond by May 7, 2013.

THE FIRST FIFTY RESPONSES WILL BE ENTERED INTO A DRAWING FOR A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO WATERLEAF RESTAURANT, COD'S FINE DINING ESTABLISHMENT.

ALSO, DID YOU KNOW that DCBA has an active Paralegal Committee, which offers programs of interest to both attorneys and paralegals? These lunchtime sessions qualify for MCLE credit, and include topics such as Intellectual Property Law and Civil Litigation. Sign up for Paralegal Committee meeting announcements on the DCBA website so you can earn CLE hours, eat a tasty pizza and salad lunch, and learn about legal developments and practice areas of interest to both paralegals and attorneys!
