LEX – A Honor Society for Paralegal Students

Each year many of the top paralegal students in the country are inducted into LEX, the National Honor Society for Paralegal Students, sponsored by AAfPE. We at Ole Miss are proud of all the members of our LEX chapter. Here’s a story about the induction of some new members in Kentucky:

In the sanctity of Courtroom 4A in the Boone County Justice Center, Judge Steven R. Jaeger, Senior Judge of the Kentucky Court of Justice, presided over the induction of eleven (11) students from Beckfield College into the Lambda Epsilon Chi National Honor Society on July 26, 2010.

“This ceremony truly acknowledges the strength and dedication of students who have gone the extra mile in and out of the classroom,” noted Jerry Linger, Attorney at Law and Dean of Legal Studies at Beckfield College. “It is so fitting to see these men and women be recognized for their academic achievement in the courtroom.”

Beckfield College paralegal students inducted into the society included Jill Archer, William Bohl, Jennifer Duncan, Pamela Gaines, Staci Gilbert, Sarah Green-Moore, Carlita Hairston, Leah Neyer, Mary Robinson, Terry Weller, Hannah Robeyzachariah.

Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) is a national honor society in paralegal studies. The purpose of LEX is to recognize persons who have demonstrated superior academic performance in an established program of paralegal/legal assistant studies offered at an institution that is an institutional member in good standing of the American Association for Paralegal Education.
