Student Resources

Get involved in one of the clubs for majors and non-majors of Legal Studies! 

The Winona State Legal Society is a group of students from many different majors from Law and Society and Legal Studies to English and Political Science. Students are at many different stages of their education and are interested in attending or planning to attend law school. Throughout the year, WSLS helps students to gain the knowledge they need to become successful in their plans on law schools, helps to prepare them for the LSAT and life during law school, offers help in choosing law school and allows students to network with students of similar goals. 

Established in 1981, AAfPE’s roots go back to the mid 1970s when the American Bar Association sponsored the first conferences for paralegal educators. While much has been accomplished in the field of paralegal education from this beginning, there is still much more to be done to fully develop the potential for both the paralegal field and education for the profession. With almost 400 members, AAfPE is the nation’s largest and continuously operating organization dedicated to promoting quality paralegal and legal studies education.

The Winona State University Chapter was chartered in 2014. The chapter holds induction ceremonies every spring. Students must exhibit significant completion of the program as well as an exceptional GPA. Please contact the director of the Legal Studies program for more details.
