Bramson ORT College's Paralegal Dept. participates in NYCPA CLE Event

Submitted by Prof. Aicha Cesar:

On October 24, 2013, students Eneida Sinjari, Andini Trisky and Qiong Zhang accompanied Professor Aicha Cesar to the New York City Paralegal Association's Continued Legal Education Seminar on Intellectual Property and the role of the paralegal who works in this stimulating and in-demand legal specialty.

BOC students attended this all-day comprehensive and substantive program at no cost (a savings of $50 per student). The seminar took place at the Manhattan corporate offices of the French company, Louis Vuitton. The seminar focused on the civil litigation issues involved in copyright, patent, and registered trademark claims and the criminal enforcement of laws against the counterfeit manufacture of luxury brand items. The event was informative and provided networking opportunities for BOC students who mingled with professional paralegals. The BOC students also enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lunch during this fabulous program.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease and provide greater access to services. 
Since its creation more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the nation dialogue on breast cancer.  It has gained huge sponsors like the NFL, where you will see almost every player wearing something pink for the whole month of October. 
Although October is designated as NBCAM, is dedicated to raising awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the entire year. 
Bramson ORT College would like to help spread awareness!  Share our blog, Facebook and Twitter posts with your friends, lets spread awareness together!!!
