County Clerk Welcomes Hofstra Students


(Mineola, NY)  Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell recently met with students from Hofstra University’s Paralegal Studies Program giving them a tour of the County Clerk’s offices and introducing them to the functions of the offices.  Paralegals work alongside attorneys and the legal community providing vital support relating to legal proceedings.  The County Clerk’s Office is Chief Clerk of Nassau’s Supreme and County Courts, processing documents related to civil proceedings and recording all real property instruments.  It is an office where many of the paralegal professional duties may be carried out.  County Clerk O’Connell gave the students an opportunity to see first hand the practical applications of their studies while exposing them to the procedural aspects of Nassau’s legal system.  This informative experience provided these future paralegal professionals a real world experience to supplement their current course work.
