Paralegal Students Go to Court

Empire College paralegal students

Paralegal students in the Civil Litigation and Advanced Legal Research and Writing classes will be attending a trial today. It is being held next door at the Civil and Family Law Courthouse. (It is great that Empire College is so connected with the legal community and courts - literally with respect to the latter since two of the Sonoma County Superior Courtrooms are located in our building!).

Hired Fridays!

Employment Readiness is the mission of all Empire College programs.

Congrats to the students hired this week:

Recent medical graduates Damayanty has accepted a Medical Assistant position with NCMA Internal Medicine, and Mandelena a Medical Assistant position with NCMA Cardiology (both hired off their externships)
