Have you considered national paralegal certification?  Don’t think you need it?  Consider this!  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national paralegal job outlook is good for many years to come.  The paralegal profession is in demand.  What that means is there will continue to be jobs available to those who want to work as a paralegal…and increased competition for the best paralegal jobs.  So, set yourself up as the most qualified applicant.  Following are several reasons to gain national certification, such as the Certified Paralegal Credential through NALA (National Association of Legal Assistants):

  • Attorneys view the credential as a dependable way to measure knowledge and ability
  • The ABA views it as an indicator of a high level of professional achievement
  • Paralegals who have the credential are highly marketable  & usually well compensated
  • Experienced paralegals who have the credential are well-positioned for promotion
  • Only NALA-certified paralegals can use CP or CLA after their name

Make the Effort – Procure the Credential
If you have procured something, great effort has been made.  Don’t shy away from great effort, especially when it comes to receiving national certification.  For complete information about eligibility requirements and everything about the NALA exam, go to http://www.nala.org/Certification.aspx.   Great success requires effort and preparation!
