LEX Information

Please remember that LEX applications are due February 15. Even if you have not completed 10 LEX hours by that date, submit the rest of the required materials by February 15. May 2 is the final date to accumulate LEX hours to be considered for induction this summer. A list of your LEX hours must be received, detailing how they were earned, no later than May 6, at 5:00 p.m. No exceptions will be made. Please do not wait until the last minute to submit documentation of your hours.

Many former Paralegal Club officers have completed their LEX hours. Several have not. If in doubt, contact Linda Jenkins. We will proceed on a case-by-case basis.

Tutoring/Mentoring Program

We are looking into offering opportunities for mentoring and tutoring as ways to earn service hours. Watch for details in the near future.

Court attendance:

  • Students may attend any court session for a total of two hours.
  • A one-page, double-spaced paper describing at least four things you observed must be written and submitted to Linda Jenkins (jenkinsl@cod.edu) before April 1, 2013.
  • Linda Jenkins will email a response indicating that you have earned the two LEX hours. Keep a copy of the email for your records.

Please note that other events may be added to the calendar as the semester progresses. Any event that takes place off campus is not an officially-sponsored COD Paralegal Club event. Neither COD Paralegal Club nor COD is responsible for student safety.
