Daemen’s Paralegal Program Earns ABA Approval

AMHERST, N.Y. – Daemen College’s Paralegal Studies Program has been granted approval by the American Bar Association, making it one of only two ABA-approved college programs in the Buffalo Niagara region.

Following an extensive evaluation process, the seven-year approval for Daemen’s program was awarded by the ABA Standing Committee on Paralegals. The college’s paralegal studies program was determined to have met rigorous requirements in curriculum, faculty selection and instruction, quality of student work, and support by administration and the legal community.

“Designation as an ABA-approved program is a key milestone that speaks to the exceptional quality of our paralegal studies program,” said Dr. Michael Brogan, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college. “We are proud of this achievement and the program’s commitment to academic excellence in educating future paralegal professionals.”
