If you are part of a forward-thinking solicitors’ practice, and your Paralegal staff sign-up to a professional membership body like the National Association of Licenced Paralegals (NALP), they have access to training and can gain formal qualifications, adding value to your firm and its reputation.
NALP has been a membership body for Paralegals for over 30 years and is also an accredited Paralegal Qualifications provider regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) the non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England.
Formally recognising the Paralegals within your firm can encourage clients by giving them comfort that they are being dealt with by a recognised professional even if they are not seeing a Solicitor.
Check out our article on Law Skills about what NALP does to raise the standard and profile for paralegals within the legal sector.
