A Practical Guide to the ABA Approval Process
This new publication serves as a guide to the ABA approval process and navigation of the ABA Paralegal Education Program Approval Process Electronic Reporting System. It serves as a step-by-step handbook to understanding the process and includes information on what programs must do in preparation for (1) submitting an application for approval; (2) hosting a site visit; (3) preparing and submitting required interim reports; (4) preparing and submitting reapproval reports; and (5) maintaining compliance throughout the period of approval, including notifying the ABA of major changes in advance of implementation. An appendix of annotated forms for use by program directors throughout the approval process is included.
The Practical Guide is available for purchase as a hard copy binder, a pdf file or both (package).
