Saving the Clark College paralegal program
Dear President Knight and Clark College Board of Trustees:
The undersigned individuals strongly support the Clark College Paralegal Program and are requesting that the proposal to terminate the program be immediately rescinded.
We are each members of the Clark County Community, either as judges, attorneys, judicial assistants, court staff, paralegals, graduates of the program, and/or current and past students of Clark's paralegal program. Many of us have employed or worked with students who attended the Clark College paralegal program and have benefited from the instruction and education they received from the program. Eliminating the paralegal program from Clark College will have a direct impact on our community and the legal profession, which relies heavily on the ability to hire individuals who have graduated from a quality education program specifically geared toward Washington laws and procedure. Clark College is the only such program in our area, which offers face-to-face instruction and practical applications of Washington material.
