To be eligible for LEX membership, inductees must have a cumulative and major GPA of 3.5 or higher within the Paralegal Studies bachelor’s degree program, or the Post-Bachelor Certificate program. The honor society connects paralegal students to national scholarship, networking, and employment opportunities.
To all of our LEX members -- keep up the great work! And finally, I’d like to recognize our terrific keynote speaker, Peirce alumna Babette Pace. You’re likely familiar with her name -- Babette is an active and successful member of the paralegal community here in Philadelphia, and she has remained well-connected to Peirce since graduating from our Paralegal Studies degree program.
It was our pleasure to name Babette as an honorary inductee to our chapter at this year’s ceremony, a recognition of her many achievements and ongoing contributions to Peirce!
