Join the American Alliance of Paralegals, the national paralegal association that continues to set standards that others follow. The American Alliance was the first to host the National Paralegal Summit, the first to host a webinar, and the first to set educational standards for voting members. The successful leadership of the American Alliance has been echoed by other paralegal organizations and proprietary educational groups, thus affirming the old adage that copying someone else is the highest form of flattery.

IN THE NEWS!
In January 2013, the American Alliance celebrated its tenth anniversary. From the early days of its inception, when a group of paralegals met in Phoenix, Arizona, to form the American Alliance, the focus was on education. The original Board felt that experienced paralegals needed a way to differential themselves from persons who merely performed clerical duties in a law office or corporate setting, and thus the American Alliance of Certified Paralegal (AACP) program was formed. Although a paralegal exam is not required, the Certification Commission follows strict protocols before approving an AACP, and 18 hours continuing legal education each 3 years is required of anyone choosing to renew his/her certification.
