The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Salt Lake City Community College’s Paralegal Studies program has been approved by the ABA, effective February 2009, and has celebrated with a series of open houses this week.
Paralegal Instructor and local attorney L. Monte Sleight said, “Like any accreditation, it’s been a long drawn out process. We’ve had to meet certain qualifications.” He added, “At the end of the day, it means that our students become more marketable. Not only locally, but everywhere.”
The college’s administration and faculty have been working for five years to attain the ABA approval.
