Capital Paralegal Program Celebrates XL
As Capital University Law School’s Paralegal Program enjoys a 40th year of continuous paralegal education, the founders were recognized at the Columbus Bar’s Annual Meeting this month.
Recognition was given to Judge John W. McCormac, the Columbus Bar, and Capital University Law School. It was through the foresight and vision of Judge McCormac that paralegal education was introduced to Columbus in 1972. His efforts as the 1972 Law School dean and Columbus Bar president spearheaded the creation of Capital’s paralegal program as a joint effort of the Columbus Bar and Capital University.
Director Donna Schoebel noted that Capital’s paralegal program is one of only two programs that are part of an ABA Approved Law School, and the only program in the nation that was co-founded by a bar association. Kudos to the Capital University Paralegal Programs for 40 years of rigorous education, nationally recognized and distinguished.
