LEX Honor Society Overview
Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) is the national honor society founded by the American Association for Paralegal Education. There are 149 Chapters throughout the United States and thousands of inductees who have been honored for their outstanding academic achievements.
Each year the host institutions select those students who meet high academic criteria and cite them for their accomplishments by inducting them into Lambda Epsilon Chi. These students are recognized through a formal ceremony and the awarding of a Certificate of Induction and a special pin. They are also entered into the permanent records of LEX.
For those Institutional, Associate or Affiliate Members of AAfPE who do not have a LEX Chapter, you may apply for one by downloading, completing and mailing the application for chapter (PDF).
For active Chapters, the necessary Inductee Form (PDF) may be downloaded. Please allow four weeks for the receipt of certificates and pins.
ELIGIBILITY OF STUDENTS FOR MEMBERSHIP IN LEX
The student to be inducted must demonstrate “superior academic performance” which is evidenced by an overall grade point average of at least 3.25, plus a grade point average in their paralegal classes of at least 3.50, to make membership in LEX a true and meaningful academic honor within the institution and a recognizable indication of superior academic achievement to members of the legal profession in the geographical area served by the institution.
