At long last, and thanks to much work by instructors Sharon Knobbe, Maria Mack, and Buri Banerjee, an officer of the Student Paralegal Club, we have an Ad Hoc Paralegal Committee as part of the DuPage County Bar Association. This allows the Paralegal Committe to hold functions at the DCBA offices, publicize its meetings in the DCBA newsletter, and otherwise have a “voice” within the DuPage County legal community. It is especially good news for students about to graduate, because it gives them a way to network with other practicing paralegals, and to host continuing education functions using DCBA facilities.
Please plan to attend the first meeting on May 24 at noon, which will be a very informative session on job-hunting skills as well as information about e-filing from the DuPage County clerk’s office. Pizza and a salad will be served. You must call to reserve a space to make sure there is enough food and enough handouts. See the attached flyer for more information.
