In The Press | What is a Paralegal and what does NALP do?

CAN YOU GIVE OUR READERS AN OVERVIEW OF THE NALP?

NALP was established in 1987 as professional membership body for paralegals in order to promote paralegals as an independent profession, not only within the legal sector but also within commerce, industry and the public and private sectors.

NALP is also the only paralegal body that is recognised as a qualifications awarding organisation regulated by Ofqual (the government body that regulates qualifications in England & Wales). Via its awarding organisation NALP has developed bespoke nationally recognised paralegal qualifications at Level 3, 4 and Level 7.

In 2004, as the foremost self-regulatory professional body for paralegals in England & Wales, NALP introduced a system of Licensing for its high status members whereby on application, and in compliance with eligibility criteria, a NALP Member can gain a Licence to Practise, offering services to their own clients (provided they have Professional Indemnity Insurance in place).

As part of our continued efforts to raising the profile for Paralegals, we discuss the roles of Paralegals and when you should hire one. Read it here
