Notable among its homepage sections are "About Paralegals," with links to salary and billing information, and "Certification," with information about its voluntary certification program for paralegals.
This is a national organization, with more than 50 local member associations, that advocates for paralegals. Look to the "Legal Resources" section (in blue at the top of your screen) for helpful research links, including one to "Sites for Specialty Practice."
