Frequently Asked Questions About The Paralegal Program
Q: Is the Chamber Paralegal Program accredited academic?
While we strive to provide a high-level, interactive top- notch educational experience for you – with attorneys, excellent instructors, materials used in law schools and CLE classes, the Chamber is not accredited by a US Department of Education recognized accrediting body. This means federal student loan aid cannot be used in conjunction with our programs. While affordable, we understand this may present a hardship for some, it is necessary for us to maintain this status in order to produce the type of program we feel is most effective for our members which we seek to serve.
