Abraham Lincoln University School of Law will be attending the California Alliance of Paralegal Association (CAPA) Educational Conference on June 22, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza International Hotel-LAX.
ALU is a Sustaining Member of CAPA, and will be showcased in the Exhibit Hall at the CAPA event. Dean Carole J. Buckner and Enrollment Manager Angelo Lioudakis will be in attendance to provide conference attendees with information about the School of Law, as well as ALU’s other legal education programs.
For years, paralegals have enrolled in the ALU School of Law to take the next step in their legal careers by earning a Juris Doctor degree. Some have moved into positions as lawyers in the same law firms where they had previously worked as paralegals.
One recent example is Carolyn (Lynn) Torres, who has worked with Los Angeles County as a paralegal in the court operations department for Child Support Services for the last 14 years. Abraham Lincoln University School of Law provided her with a path to earn her Juris Doctor degree and then, on her first attempt, to successfully pass the February 2013 California General Bar Exam.
Abraham Lincoln University’s Juris Doctor degree program allowed Torres to attend law school while working full time, raising a family, and even volunteering as parent coordinator for her son's high school football team. Torres says none of it would have been possible without Abraham Lincoln University's technological advances in higher education. She credits ALU’s Founder Hyung Park and the ALU faculty's vision and belief that a doctorate degree can be earned by non-traditional methods, providing opportunities for working students, without requiring the physical presence or cost of traditional law school programs.
ALU offers an online four-year Juris Doctor program, including live streaming online lectures and live interactive chats, so that student questions are answered in real time. The program offers a single substantive course at a time, with course content that is similar to traditional law schools. In addition, ALU offers programs in paralegal and legal studies, criminal justice, information technology and business administration.
