■North Carolina librarian Julie Quetel has been accepted to the paralegal program at Meredith College in Raleigh. She currently works for the Internet Public Library and has a master’s degree in library & information science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“I have chosen to pursue a career in the paralegal field because I am interested in the management of information as it relates to the law. The law touches nearly every aspect of our lives and the practice of it is an information intensive endeavor,” says Quetel.

“I have realized throughout my work and education that I enjoy being challenged. The law and the paralegal profession are constantly evolving and require a proactive approach to keeping current. It is through a passion for knowledge that a complex and demanding field such as paralegalism must be approached. I am convinced that a career as a paralegal will allow me to put into practice my enthusiasm for information management.”
