College of the Canyons Paralegal Program Receives ABA Approval

Congratulations to College of the Canyons (COC) Paralegal Studies program in Santa Clarita, California, for its recent accreditation by the American Bar Association (ABA) – becoming “the only ABA approved program of its kind in the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys – and one of approximately 30 such programs in the state.”

COC instructor Nicole Lucy discusses why the ABA certification benefits both the program and the legal community:

Lucy, the chair of the Paralegal Studies program, and Los Angeles attorney Gary Collis, are presenting a free academic overview and discussion “‘Til Death Do Us Part: A Legal Perspective of Same Sex Marriage in the Golden State” at COC on April 21, 2010. Click on this link for more information. This is an excellent learning and networking opportunity, especially for area legal students and professionals.
