Honors Paralegal Graduate to Speak at College Graduation

New paralegal graduate Lisa Leandro, a resident of California, will speak on behalf of the graduating class at Empire College School of Business’s semiannual graduation exercises on January 27, 2009. See Press-Democrat. She is graduating with honors from the paralegal associate degree program. In 2008, she joined the Redwood Empire Association of Paralegals (REAP).

While googling Ms. Leandro, I stumbled across Empire College’s newsletter, The Empire Writes Back (anybody out there a Star Wars fan?) The Spring 2008 issue is an outstanding example of collegiate reporting and student initiative. In addition to a great article on networking and tips from working graduates, the newsletter celebrates the activities and achievements of its students, including obtaining internships.

In 2008 Empire College paralegal students obtained internships not only with private law firms, but with various Sonoma County court offices, including Superior Court Traffic Division, Court Interpreter’s Office, Family Law Facilitator’s and Small Claims Clinic. The paralegal program also has working legal professionals mentor its students.
