Introduction Hi everyone! I am Carol Sherman, Professor of Legal Studies at Peirce College. I am licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and started my legal career as an associate attorney at an insurance defense firm and later an associate at a personal injury firm in Philadelphia. Prior to joining Peirce College, I was the Deputy Managing Attorney and Pro Bono Director at Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania where I managed the Elder Law Unit.

At Peirce College, I teach online and on campus students in courses such as introduction to paralegal studies, legal technology, employment law, family law, workers’ compensation, and ethics. I am also the faculty advisor for Peirce College’s Paralegal Student Association. I was the 2012-2013 President of the Mid-Atlantic Academy of Legal Studies in Business, and the 2010 recipient of the Hamilton Award in recognition of academic excellence and integrity.
