HAMBURG, N.Y. – New transfer articulation agreements with Erie Community College and Hilbert College have been established. The agreements are with ECC’s AAS paralegal program and Hilbert’s baccalaureate paralegal program and with ECC’s Digital Forensics certificate program and Hilbert’s Computer Security and Information Assurance program. 

Hilbert’s paralegal studies program is the oldest and most established paralegal program in Western New York. It has also been approved by the ABA since 1977 and is a charter member of the American Association for Paralegal Education.

The paralegal program has BS and AAS degrees with flexible scheduling for day or evening courses. Experienced attorneys, who are experts in their fields, teach the paralegal courses at Hilbert. Internships are available and tailored to the student’s goals. Graduates go on to rewarding careers in law firms, corporate legal departments, government, non-profits, banking, insurance, and the public sector.

Previously established articulation agreements between Hilbert College and two institutions – Genesee Community College and the Olean Business Institute – have been updated.

The transfer articulation agreement with the Olean Business Institute is for OBI’s AAS paralegal program and Hilbert’s American Bar Association (ABA) approved baccalaureate paralegal program.

The transfer articulation agreement with Genesee Community College is between GCC’s ABA approved AAS paralegal program and Hilbert’s baccalaureate paralegal program. The GCC program began in 1992 and is a member of the American Association for Paralegal Education.
