In 1974 the General College Legal Paraprofessional Program was evaluated by a team of visitors representing the Special Committee on Legal Assistants of the American Bar Association (ABA). The first part of this document is the full text of the "Evaluation Report" submitted to the ABA House of Delegates by the visitation team. The second part is a "Self-Evaluation" prepared by the coordinator of the program prior to the team's April 1974 visit. The Legal Assistant Program is a two-year program operating within the four-year General College. The program has been in existence for approximately three years and has been part of the extension program for the past year. Current enrollment in the program is 55 students and classes are limited to 25 each; 26 students had been graduated from the program prior to the visitation. Information presented in the two parts of this document describe the following aspects of the program: (1) organization and administration, (2) curriculum, (3) faculty, (4) admission and student services, (5) library resources, and (6) the physical plant. The visitation team was generally impressed with the program and recommended formal approval. Their recommendations for future improvement of the program are listed. (DC)
