    Hamline's Paralegal Program participates in the American Association for Paralegal Education's (AAfPE) National Paralegal Honor Society, Labda Epsilon Chi (LEX).  The purpose of LEX is to recognize persons who have demonstrated superior academic performance in an established paralegal program at an institution in good standing with AAFPE.
