Students Attend Annual Paralegal Roundtable

 In Latest News, The Institute for Legal Studies

Paralegal Studies students recently had an opportunity to hear from working paralegals from the Louisville legal community, including Sullivan graduates, when they attended the 22nd annual Paralegal Roundtable Discussion sponsored by the Institute for Legal Studies on Sullivan University’s Louisville campus. Students were especially fortunate this year as two roundtable discussions were conducted – one for the day division and one for the evening division.

The speakers took turns explaining their role and function at their respective places of employment, covering such topics as their job title, area of law practiced, specific job responsibilities, work environment, positive/negative aspects of the job, and opportunities for advancement.

One student, Anne-Marie E. Bergman, thought the roundtable was, “Superb…very insightful. Really appreciated the time these paralegals spent with us today.”

Lorel Taylor is a current Paralegal student who anticipates that she will graduate in March. She says she chose this area of study because, “”I have always been interested in the legal system and have a desire to serve my community. I love the in-depth classes and knowledge that I am gaining from this experience. After participating in the paralegal roundtable, Taylor said, “It was very informative about the different fields and the day-to-day activity involved in the job. The aspects each person talked about pertaining to their positions were a great insight.”
