Florida Registered Paralegal Program Is 3,000 Strong

On the anniversary of the Florida Registered Paralegal program, it had over 3,000 who had registered with the state bar.

In order to qualify for the FRP applicants must meet one of the following requirements: work experience or education, certification or grandfathering. The work experience or education requirement includes a variety of educational degree and years of work experience requirements. (details are available at flabar.org). The certification requirement can be fullfilled through successful completion of testing through either the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) or the National Federation of Paralegal Assistants (NFPA).

Paralegals are optimistic regarding the future success of the program.

  1. That is an impressive number and it is only going to go even higher. And then that is going to create an environment where paralegals in Florida need to be registered to be competitive and soon it will be a de facto requirement.
