South Suburban College Paralegal Students Honored

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – On Wednesday, April 13th, five students of the South Suburban College Paralegal Program were inducted into Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX). LEX is a national honor society founded by the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAPE). To be inducted into LEX, the student must have an overall GPA of 3.25 or better, a GPA of 3.5 or better in Paralegal courses, and must have completed at least two-thirds of the program. We would like to congratulate Lauren Kowalewski, Joellen Leavy, Juliann Pawlowski, Kristina Schmidt, and Kristal Young on their hard work and dedication to the Paralegal Profession.

South Suburban College’s Paralegal/Legal Assistant Program offers two curriculum pathways: a two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree career program, and a Certificate Program available to those persons possessing a Bachelor’s or AAS Degree. Both curriculums are designed to prepare a student to become a highly trained paralegal/legal assistant. This program also serves as an outstanding background for students who are considering law school in the future, or simply wish to learn more about the law. The curriculum prepares students to work in a variety of legal environments upon graduation. To help prepare its students, the program requires a hands-on internship in a legal or law related setting. SSC is the only community college in the South Suburban Chicago region that is approved by the American Bar Association.

For more information on the program, please contact the Program Coordinator, Jason M. Cieslik, J.D. at (708) 596-2000, ext. 2579 or
