It is important to distinguish between a paralegal certificate and certification. The terms are often confused. The terms are not interchangeable and have separate meaning. A certificate verifies that a student has successfully completed a paralegal educational program. Generally, these programs are offered at universities and colleges. The prerequisites may vary but many require the entering student to have an associate or bachelor’s degree in another area. For example, if a program offers a post‐baccalaureate paralegal certificate, the student will have obtained a bachelor’s degree in an area other than paralegal studies. It is possible that the student will take only legal specialty courses since they have completed their general education requirements during the pursuit of their associate or bachelor’s degree. Upon successful completion of the institution’s educational requirements, the student is issued a certificate of completion. The student is now certificated in paralegal studies. A certified paralegal is one that has successfully completed a certification exam or other requirements of the certifying organization. Certification is the process through which an organization grants formal recognition to an individual that meets certain established requirements. This may include meeting educational requirements, prior work experience as a paralegal and passing an examination. Once the paralegal has met these criteria, they may use a special designation namely, “certified paralegal”. Currently, all certification programs in the United States are voluntary. Therefore, a paralegal may work in the field without obtaining certification. Two of the national paralegal organizations, the National Association of Legal Assistants, or NALA, and the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, or NFPA, offer certification. Some state bar associations, such as The Florida Bar Registered Paralegal Program, The North Carolina State Bar Certified Paralegal Program, and The Ohio State Bar Association Paralegal Certification Program, offer voluntary certification, or registration, for paralegals working in those states. In addition, the Texas Board of Legal Specialization Paralegal Certification Program certifies paralegals in six select areas of law. The scope, duration and requirements for the certification credential vary with each organization. Check with the organization offering the credential to determine the requirements.
The paralegal profession has grown significantly since its humble beginnings in the 1960’s. Overworked and harried lawyers typically handled many of the routine tasks performed by paralegals. Now these tasks can be passed directly to a person who has the skills, training and education in the legal field and who can complete assignments in a quick and efficient manner. Although the paralegal profession has gained recognition in the legal community, there are no formal educational requirements for entering the profession. Anyone can “walk” in the door of your law firm and identify himself/herself as a paralegal, without having to produce a certificate or license showing that he/she is qualified in any sort of legal capacity. Many paralegals in the Greater Cincinnati area have graduated from colleges and universities and others have also obtained a paralegal certificate from an ABA approved program. However, how is the employer able to “ferret out” the “walk-in” paralegals from the “genuine product?” One way might be to have the Ohio State Bar Association or some other regulatory agency institute a certification program for paralegals. Currently there is no regulation for paralegals in Ohio, although other states have adopted voluntary certification. North Carolina’s certification is voluntary and Wisconsin’s Supreme Court is reviewing proposed certification. California and Maine have laws that regulate nonlawyers who perform specific legal tasks. Today there are three nationally recognized paralegal associations that offer voluntary certification programs, namely the American Alliance of Paralegals (“AAPI”), the National Association of Legal Assistants (“NALA”) and the National Federation of Paralegals (“NFPA”). NALA and NFPA offer a testing program, while AAPI’s standards require a college degree and a minimum of five years’ substantive paralegal experience. Once the paralegals attain the certification they must acquire a minimum number of continuing legal education credits each year, including ethics, to maintain the certification. The Paralegal/Legal Assistant Committee of the Ohio State Bar Association has been looking into the benefits to be gained by employers and paralegals, if such a voluntary certification program were put in place in Ohio. The five paralegal associations in Ohio (Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo) have unanimously agreed that guidelines and standards for the education and professional conduct of paralegals are important to the profession. A voluntary program would identify individuals who are qualified by education and training and who have demonstrated knowledge, skills and proficiency to perform substantive legal work, supervised by a lawyer. So, what would be the quid pro quo? What would lawyers gain by employing a ...
Curricula Chaffey College offers two year associate in art or science degrees in academic or vocational ﬁelds, one-year certiﬁcates of achievement, and transfer programs that meet the lower-division requirements for a baccalaureate degree to be obtained at a four-year college or university. The college operates on the semester system, which consists of fall, spring, and summer terms. Paralegal Program The College Chaffey College, one of the ﬁrst colleges to be established in California, is a two-year public community college situated in an area of natural and tranquil beauty in Southern California. The campus occupies 200 acres of rolling lawns and native foliage in the foothills of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. Founded in 1883 as a private college, Chaffey has been a publicly funded college since 1916. 5885 Haven Avenue Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91737 Paralegal Program Chaffey courses are offered at the main campus in Rancho Cucamonga and off-campus centers in Chino, Fontana, and the new Chino Information Technology Center.

Learning is our business…your success is our goal! The Program The Paralegal Studies Certiﬁcate Program is intended to prepare students for employment as paralegals in various legal and business sectors. Chaffey’s Paralegal Studies Certiﬁcate Program emphasizes practical application and the development of up-to-date paralegal related job skills in addition to teaching legal theory. The certiﬁcate program is designed to enhance the ability of students to reason, understand and apply correct principles of law by teaching analytical and critical thinking skills. Graduates of the certiﬁcate program possess skills to enter the paralegal profession. The certiﬁcate program also allows those already in the paralegal line of work to improve their understanding of the paralegal profession. California State law requires all paralegals to be certiﬁed by an accredited educational institution. Chaffey College’s Paralegal Studies Certiﬁcate Program meets and exceeds such mandates. Chaffey College is approved by the California Department of Education and the Western Association for Schools and Colleges. The certiﬁcate is awarded to students who have successfully completed 27 semester units in law-related courses. Chaffey College’s Paralegal Studies Certiﬁcate Program also exceeds the American Bar Association’s guideline for paralegal educational requirement.
This booklet is a compilation of administrative rules and forms for those seeking to participate in the Certified Paralegal program of NALA. It is a companion to the brochure entitled “Professional Paralegal Certification from NALA” which describes the paralegal certification program in greater detail and includes a description of the sections of the Certified Paralegal examination. Beginning in the fall of 2010, the Certified Paralegal examination will be delivered via computer based testing, instead of a paper-pencil. Examinees will be provided with access to a computer and instructions for completing the examination on the computer. ACT Testing Center Network Most examinees in the Certified Paralegal program will be utilizing the testing center network of the ACT. There are over 200 ACT testing centers throughout the United States. Most are located community colleges and universities. After examinees are admitted to the Certified Paralegal program, they will work directly with ACT to confirm testing appointments. Details about this procedure are included in this booklet. Examinees Participating in Non-ACT Testing Centers NALA has established procedures which allow an employer or school which is not already an ACT testing center to apply to become a NALA approved testing center. This is designed for groups of employees, or paralegal schools. A packet of forms and requirements to become an authorized testing center for the Certified Paralegal examination is available from the NALA web site and may also be obtained by contacting NALA Headquarters. The information in this booklet describes the testing procedure for those utilizing ACT testing centers. For those who are not using an ACT testing center, the center rules, policies, and terms and conditions for delivery of the examination will remain the same. The difference is that the appointment procedures will vary based on the instructions of the business or school. Examinees who are participating in a testing center outside of the ACT network will be provided with information regarding test times and dates on an individual basis. The same testing dates will apply for all testing centers. Certified Paralegal Program 2010 Information, Policy, Forms

General Description The paralegal (legal assistant) works under the supervision of an attorney. Responsibilities are broad and varied including preparing and interpreting legal documents, interviewing clients, performing legal research, preparing for trial, and organizing and managing documentation. Paralegals often work with attorneys in specialized areas of law such as immigration, family law, personal injury, contracts, wills, trusts, and probate. Southwestern College offers two programs, paralegal studies and paralegal studies—bilingual, which provide students with a litigation background and focus on developing an awareness and sensibility to the language, culture, and common legal issues of clients from various ethnic groups within the community. An understanding of international legal issues which impact San Diego due to its geographical location, and other legal and business related activities are also developed. Employment in the field tends to vary. Larger, well-established law firms commonly require a bachelor’s degree, and smaller law firms and legal agencies often require a two-year associate degree or its equivalent. Potential employees who have an advanced education level, knowledge of a frequently used foreign language, and/or an emphasis in a legal specialty will have the greatest opportunities in the job market. Career Options Below is a sample of the career options available for the paralegal studies major. A few require a certificate of achievement, some require an associate in science degree, and some require a bachelor’s degree: claims examiner, compensation and benefits manager, corporate legal assistant, court clerk, customs agent, forms and procedures specialist, freelance paralegal, legal assistant, investigator (for local, state, and federal departments and agencies), legal aide, legal research assistant, legal technician, patent agent, and title examiner. This training can also provide entrance to some careers in administration of justice such as youth authority, probation, and parole officer when a candidate passes appropriate tests and gains related experience.

What does a paralegal do? A paralegal, also called a legal assistant, is a person who assists an attorney in the practice of law. Responsibilities may include legal research, document analysis, cite checking, and investigational research. The paralegal may also aid the attorney in drafting pleadings, interrogatories and discovery, interviewing clients, administering trusts and estates, assisting with real estate transactions, drafting certificates and corporate documents needed by state law to form various business entities as well as assisting in client-related matters that do not require a law degree. It is important to note that, in general, paralegals do not represent the public in the practice of law by either expressed or implied actions. The Unauthorized Practice of Law (UPL statute) is a criminal offense in the State of Texas and in all other states within the United States. The National Federation of Paralegal Associations defines a paralegal as “…a person qualified through education, training or work experience, to perform substantive legal work that requires knowledge of legal concepts and is customarily, but not exclusively, performed by a lawyer. This person may be retained or employed by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency, or other entity or may be authorized by administrative, statutory or court authority to perform this work.” What is the difference between a paralegal and a legal assistant? There is no specific standard or set of qualifications one must achieve to become a legal assistant or a paralegal. The terms “legal assistant” and “paralegal” can be interchangeable. Historically, paralegals have been referred to as paralegals or legal assistants depending upon their geographical location or employer’s preference; the terms are synonymous and used interchangeably. In November 1995, the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) adopted the term Paralegal as the preferred term for the profession. NFPA members identified several recent trends in the paralegal profession including court decisions awarding higher fees to attorneys employing persons called paralegal instead of legal assistant, the ABA Commission on Non-Lawyer Practice’s latest report using paralegal almost exclusively, and several paralegal associations changing their names to paralegal from legal assistant. What is the starting pay of a paralegal? Starting pay is dependent upon a variety of factors, including relevant work experience and location. According to industry surveys, a starting paralegal with little work experience can start at an average of $25,000 to $30,000 annually. This is about the national average for entry-level paralegals. What is the job market for paralegals? According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Occupational Outlook Quarterly, the paralegal profession is solidly growing and a very secure occupation. The growth rate is estimated at 35% through the year 2014. Do I have to be licensed or registered by the State of Texas or the State Bar of Texas? No. There are no requirements or procedures for licensing or registration of legal assistants or paralegals. They work under the supervision of a licensed attorney who assumes full responsibility for the work product. Why do I need to have a paralegal certificate then? This has become almost mandatory in the workplace because it is an economic issue for the law firm. The courts, both the United State Supreme Court and a State of Texas Appellate Court, along with other state courts, have held that compensation for a paralegal’s work may be separately ...
