Bramson ORT College Paralegal Department News

Bramson ORT College is joining the New York City Paralegal Association as a sustaining member. Each month, two paralegal students will attend the association’s meetings, networking events, and social programs featuring law firms and certified paralegals.

Legal Research and Writing students are taking a field trip to the Brooklyn Law Library on August 6, 2013. They will meet with a law librarian, tour the library, and review available research facilities and resources. Professor Aicha Cesar is very dedicated to her students. She is planning a special class on the basics of briefing a case. Reviewing, analyzing, and understanding cases are essential skills for all paralegals and will assist paralegal students in mastering these tasks.

The 2nd Moot Court Competition is underway with a Torts fact pattern. Students are preparing to submit written briefs on the case and make oral arguments in front of the Paralegal Department faculty. The Competition provides students with an opportunity to polish their written and verbal communication skills as well as engage in a friendly simulation of legal argument.
