Finally, there is a powerful medium for progress and professional advancement for all paralegals working within the Five Boroughs, White Plains and Westchester!
The New York City Paralegal Association (formerly Manhattan Paralegal Association) has been revived and was newly incorporated on May 25, 2007. They have created a powerful medium through which new and experienced paralegals, as well as paralegal students, can connect and network with colleagues. The Association will be offering its members regular conferences, seminars, and study groups to aid and supplement members' legal education and provide information on topics affecting the paralegal profession in general and New York City paralegals in particular.
The New York City Paralegal Association (NYCPA) has provided a list serve through yahoogroups.com, which its members are encouraged to use to discuss topics of interest, ask questions, network, and spread the word about job openings. They also have a newsletter, "The Paralegal Times," that will be published quarterly and will be available on their Web site, as well as in print form.
Membership in the New York City Paralegal Association also provides benefits beyond those associated with our local professional organization. Membership in the NYCPA also includes representation on the state level as a member of the Empire State Alliance of Paralegal Associations (ESAPA) and nationally as a member of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA).
Membership is open to all paralegals and paralegal students at full, associate and student levels. Applications can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or by writing to the following address:
