The Lex Society

The Lex Society began in 1993 as the Legal Assistant Student Organization. Since then, the Association has expanded and has offered many seminars, roundtables and lectures for students and alumni on topics of interest to paralegals. Some topics have included paralegal mentors, career building, paralegal regulation, and how to obtain your first paralegal position. The Association has coordinated field trips for students to attend oral argument at the Connecticut Supreme Court and to visit the State Forensic Science Laboratory. The Association has also assisted with several legal lectures on the University of Hartford campus, including Janet Reno and Nina Totenberg. The Association has been recognized by the University, receiving a leadership award for its contributions to the University and the Greater Hartford community.
