Paralegal Open House

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see what is involved in your choice of study before actually registering for classes?
On January 5, 2010 Vol State students wanting to become a paralegal will have that opportunity. There will be an open house at 5 p.m. in Mattox 106.
“It is still a viable job market,” said Loretta Calvert, Coordinator of the Paralegal Program. “The highest demand in the paralegal job market is Bankruptcy,” she said.
Calvert said that it is a popular program and several students enroll. “When I checked my list of advisees for the semester I personally have over one hundred,” she said.
At the open house students will be able to see what classes will be offered, as well as the content of the program. If they decide this is something they would like to do there will be time to sign up for classes before January 14. “I will never push it down someone’s throat. You need to have a passion for it,” Calvert said.
“We have people with Bachelor’s degrees that want to come and get a degree in the paralegal field,” said Calvert. Law students sometimes take paralegal courses and this can prove beneficial when going to law school according to Calvert.
Students interested in attending may email Loretta Calvert for additional information at
