What we offer
1. NALP offers membership to a rapidly expanding profession within the legal sector. NALP, as an organisation, has a sound governance structure and actively lobbies, on behalf of its increasing membership, to develop the status and perception of Paralegals within it.
We urge any person who performs legal work, within any organisation or company, to join NALP as a member. We have a membership status for all levels. We also urge those Independent Paralegal Practitioners who are not already NALP Members, to join NALP and then apply for a NALP Licence to Practice
3. NALP Training is a NALP Centre and offers Paralegal Qualifications to support the professionalism of Paralegals that exist at many levels within an organisation. There are junior paralegals and very senior paralegals performing many different functions. However, at whatever level they are, they have one thing in common, and that is the necessity for a thorough grounding in the English Legal System, the main areas of substantive law and also legal procedure. The philosophy of NALP is that to succeed as a specialist, a paralegal must start as a generalist. No specialist area exists in a vacuum or in isolation.
