New paralegal honor society at Peirce

Exciting news for students and recent alumni of our Paralegal Studies program: Peirce College now has a chapter of Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX), a nationally recognized academic national honor society for paralegal students. LEX is sponsored by the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE) which offers national scholarship opportunities and networking opportunities with other legal professionals.

Induction into the society is based upon academic excellence. Candidates for membership in LEX must be in good academic standing (a cumulative and major GPA of 3.5 or higher) at Peirce College as a Paralegal Studies Bachelor of Science student or as a Post-Bachelor Certificate Paralegal Studies student.

Peirce College will induct students into LEX during the spring semester of each year, starting with Spring 2011. Eligible students will be contacted by the Dean of Students, Rita Toliver-Roberts, with an invitation to join the honor society.

More information about LEX membership can be found on the Peirce College Paralegal Student Association site.
