Ohio State Bar Certifies Paralegals

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- On Tuesday, the Ohio State Bar Association certified 82 paralegals. The new certification program designates paralegals who have met the requirements as "OSBA Certified Paralegals."

In order to be an OSBA Certified Paralegal, an applicant must meet the definition of a paralegal and be eligible to sit for the written examination after meeting specified education/experience, continuing legal education, and reference requirements.

The certification period for an OSBA Certified Paralegal is four years. Biennial reporting is required to maintain certification. At the end of the certification period, a paralegal may be recertified if the continuing legal education and reference requirements continue to be met.
