For more than 30 years, the Paralegal Studies Program at Roosevelt University has been one of the Midwest's most recognized paralegal training programs. Today, there are nearly 12,000 program alumni contributing extensively to the legal community in various capacities (i.e., law firms, corporations, legal aid clinics, government agencies, and higher education). Some of our graduates also serve on the program’s advisory board in leadership roles. We invite you to meet a few of our outstanding graduates and learn why they chose Roosevelt and what this university continues to mean to them.
Eileen Mulrenin, 2010 Graduate
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the U of I Urbana-Champaign in December 2008. I spent some time out of work, because I wanted to learn some new skills in order to make myself more employable. A family member of mine had worked as a paralegal for many years and recommended Roosevelt University’s Paralegal Studies Program. I highly recommend Roosevelt’s paralegal program! The instructors in the program were very supportive! My first job out of the program was a part-time paralegal position at the Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing, the same organization where I did my internship through Roosevelt’s program. LCBH really liked my performance during the internship and by a stroke of fortune had a gap in the legal support office to fill. I am still at LCBH; the only difference is that I have been promoted to a full-time paralegal.
