ICAP is proud to introduce its affiliate organizations, specifically:
CALIFORNIA ALLIANCE OF PARALEGAL ASSOCIATIONS (CAPA)
CAPA is a statewide non-profit, mutual benefit corporation dedicated to the advancement of the paralegal profession and the proposition that paralegals gain strength through alliance.
CAPA represents California paralegals working in attorney- supervised settings and CAPA supports, encourages, and promotes an active relationship among its affiliated member associations (including CAP), attorneys, national, state and local Bar Associations, and others in the legal community.
CAPA maintains statewide and national communications for the purpose of keeping all of its members current with information relating to the paralegal profession. CAPA also serves as a forum for the pooling and dissemination of varying opinions and professional experiences. CAPA affiliated members, by discussion and consensus, work together cooperatively and respectfully to achieve goals and to maintain the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.
In order to maximize paralegals’ knowledge and expertise, CAPA supports formal education, training, continuing education, and voluntary competency testing including certified examinations.
By networking and sharing reciprocal resources, CAPA’s affiliated associations are presented with opportunities to participate in the development of concepts, issues, and objectives which will shape the direction of the paralegal profession for the ultimate benefit of the legal profession and the California public in general.
Since 1975, NALA has been trusted to provide exceptional continuing education and professional development designed specifically to advance paralegals in their careers. NALA connects our members with their peers across the nation and opens doors of knowledge and opportunity. We provide current information about the paralegal profession, continuing education (publications, courses, and webinars), networking opportunities, professional certification programs, occupational survey reports, and publications to help paralegals excel in the workplace.
NALA represents more than 18,000 paralegals nationwide, who are individual members and members of NALA affiliated associations (including ICAP). NALA sets the national standard for paralegal excellence.
We encourage you to visit the websites of each of these excellent affiliates, and show your support.
