The October event provided an opportunity for educators to acquire essential and cutting-edge information and resources to ensure students are as knowledgeable and career-ready as possible. Participants explored such trends as experiential learning opportunities for students, including service learning and clinics, as well as strategies to help students develop skills needed to participate effectively in conversations.

“The entire purpose of the conference is to connect with paralegal educators across the nation, so there were a lot of takeaways, including new flexibility in the virtual landscape of teaching and exploration of the high-impact classroom to improve the student learning experience,” says Ballenger, of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Held annually, AAfPE’s National Conference is the premier meeting of paralegal and legal studies educators. With almost 400 member schools, AAfPE is the largest organization dedicated to promoting quality paralegal and legal studies education in the United States.
