Have you joined your local paralegal association? It is one of the best resources for networking, getting employment leads, and staying up to date on issues and trends in the paralegal profession. Additionally, you can find pro bono and internship opportunities through your local paralegal association.
Local paralegal associations are usually affiliated with the National Federation of Paralegal Associations or The National Association of Legal Assistants. The two organizations also offer paralegal certification and publications to keep you current on trends and issues pertaining to paralegals and the paralegal profession. Both organizations espouse the need and value of paralegals in the legal profession.
