Stephanie Weiser
Major: Paralegal Studies

It’s the strong reputation of the Paralegal Studies program, along with its recognition by the American Bar Association, that attracted Stephanie Weiser to College of DuPage.

“I have always been interested in the legal field, and a paralegal career is a great way to explore this interest,” she said. “COD gave me the tools I need to succeed in a paralegal position. The challenging courses taught me to look at situations in a different way. This new perspective is helping me in my day-to-day life as well as in my career.”

Weiser graduated in December 2013 and is currently working as a paralegal for a law firm in Wheaton that specializes in family law. She appreciated the constant support from the program and advises other students to put everything they can into their studies.

“Welcome the challenges and the opportunities provided, and work hard to learn everything you can,” she said. “The Paralegal Studies professors are phenomenal. I cannot compliment them enough; they are experienced, intelligent and, most importantly, they care about their students.”
