Well done Paralegal Club on securing the win for Best Multicultural/Diversity Program! Clear evidence that things are getting better all the time!
To All Current Paralegal Students,
The ABA requires that we survey our students periodically to assess their level of satisfaction with the Paralegal Studies program and the services provided by COD. We survey all students every May, so it is now time to launch the survey!
This is your opportunity to provide input into the program and suggest improvements. We share the results of the survey with our Paralegal Advisory Council members, and of course, with the ABA. Your comments are taken into close consideration, so please let us hear from you to let us know how we are doing and how we can make our program even better than it is!
I will ask all professors to post a notice about the survey in their Blackboard course shells, so you will probably hear about the survey from several different instructors. However, you should only fill out the survey once.
Please click on the link below to answer the brief survey.
Thank you very much for your participation! Good luck on your final exams and final projects!

If you are currently job-seeking, don’t forget to upload your resume into the College Central Network job-matching database. I know many employers prefer to find job candidates by reviewing uploaded resumes while keeping their identities confidential. This way they avoid being swamped with resumes, including resumes of people who don’t really have the job credentials they are seeking.
I know of two law firms that are actively seeking paralegals. One firm is looking for a family law paralegal, and the other is looking for a corporate law paralegal. Both of them intend to look for paralegals by reviewing the uploaded resumes in the college central network resume bank. If you want to be considered for these positions, be sure to upload your resume into the resume bank!
Instructions for registering with college central network are attached.
Good luck to all job-seekers!
