1771 N. Lobdell Blvd., Ste. 307, Baton Rouge, LA 70806

BRC Description

On June 1, 1981, the school opened its doors for training individuals for legal paraprofessional skills. An attorney and an official of the court started the school. The organizers recognized the need for a school because both worked in the courts and saw a demand for trained individuals to assist attorneys. Presently, the school is owned and administered by Mohammad Ajmal, M.D. The highly qualified staff is made up of attorneys and other professionals who have degrees in various subjects and/or required work experience in various areas of study.

The school became nationally accredited in 1989. In 1990, the name of the school was changed to Baton Rouge College and relocated to a new facility on Sherwood Forest Boulevard. The school houses state-of-the-art equipment in a setting conducive to the modern office environment. In 1993, the first lecture site was opened. In 1995, the staff and faculty developed the first Paralegal Specialty Program offered by any college or university in Louisiana. In 2000, the College developed the first seminar courses designed for law office personnel to be offered by a Louisiana-based school. In 2003, the Louisiana Board of Regents granted approval of the Paralegal Associate of Arts Degree program. In 2005, the seminar program was expanded to include other subjects related to the legal profession. This innovative curriculum is an example of the College's ever renewing curriculum and developmental process. The staff refines its methods and procedures on a regular basis to meet the needs of the community. BRC in years past has maintained lecture sites in New Orleans, Metairie, Hammond, Mobile, and Slidell. Lecture sites are opened and closed based on market demand. Currently Baton Rouge has only 1 lecture site, located on Lobdell Blvd, in Baton Rouge.

The College has been approved by the Louisiana State Bar, Alabama State Bar, Mississippi State Bar, Texas State Bar and Georgia State Bar to offer continuing legal education courses for attorneys.

Baton Rouge College is privately supported, non-denominational, and nationally accredited. The United States Department of Education and the Louisiana State Board of Regents for Colleges and Universities approved the school and its paralegal curriculum. The institution is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), a nationwide accrediting organization recognized by the United States Department of Education in Washington, D.C.

Baton Rouge College is a Member of the Louisiana Association of Private Colleges and Schools.
