Please Help Us Assess the Vitality and Need for our Paralegal Programs

Illinois Central College is assessing the Vitality and continued Need for our Paralegal Programs. In addition, we are preparing for an American Bar Association site visit in our most recent re-approval process.  The Illinois Central College Paralegal Program offers an American Bar Association approved Paralegal Degree and a Post Degree Certificate.  The program has been in existence since 1989 and ABA approved since 1992.   

Several Central Illinois lawyers, law firms and employers of Paralegals have provided feedback concerning the need for our programs throughout Central Illinois.  These employers include sole practitioners, small, medium and large law firms, legal departments at Fortune 50 corporations and governmental offices all across Central Illinois. 

We need Central Illinois lawyers and employers of Paralegals to assist us in a small way and we would like our students and graduates employed as Paralegals to share this request.

Will you please take a few moments to complete this short online survey or forward this message and the survey link to whomever hires Paralegals in your office?  Additionally, in the last section seeking comments, could you offer any specific thoughts on your needs or the legal communities need for our Paralegal Programs?  

Thank you for your time.  We use this information to constantly improve what we provide to students who have found valuable and rewarding employment as Paralegals in this region.  We also look forward to your input as to the need for us to continue to do so.
