CAPITAL AREA PARALEGAL ASSOCIATION
Capital Area Paralegal Association (CAPA) is a voluntary non-profit corporation comprised of paralegals and legal assistants, students, and vendors in Austin, Texas and the Central Texas area. CAPA was organized in September 1978 by a small group of pioneering paralegals and has since grown into the largest Texas affiliate of NALA - The Paralegal Association.
OF THE MONTH
There are several thousand paralegals in Texas. Fewer than 400 are Board Certified by the TBLS. Texas Paralegal Board Certification is a singular professional achievement and significant personal accomplishment that few paralegals achieve. Within the Texas legal community, TBLS Board Certification distinguishes a paralegal as having substantial, relevant experience in a select area of law with demonstrated and tested special competence.
TBLS Board Certified Paralegals earn the right to represent themselves as a specialist in Texas law. This designation distinguishes them as paralegals with the highest professional commitment to excellence in their area of law. The application process is voluntary and extensive, and the examination is thorough. The rewards are high.
Board Certification applications and program information are available at http://www.tbls-bcp.org/Cert/Request-Application.
