The ABA visits COD

 The American Bar Association visits the COD Paralegal Program for re-approval.

COD Courier, March 14, 2018

“The program first achieved ABA approval in 2010, and, since then, the professors involved in the program have worked to maintain the standards required to keep that approval, including filing interim reports every two and a half years.

On Feb. 19, the ABA site team toured the school with Fairbanks [sic] and met with COD President Ann Rondeau. This visit also included a tour of the library, meetings with students and professors and a sit in on one of the paralegal studies classes. The process of preparing for this visit is no small feat. The application process began in 2016. In-depth reports were put together with details on the program, the courses and materials available and information on opportunities and resources available for students participating in the program.”
