2018 CP Exam Changes

The NALA Certifying Board provides oversight for the development and ongoing maintenance of the Certified Paralegal Examination. The Certifying Board approved the new structure for the CP examination effective January 2018 due to results of the recent job analysis, improvements in technology, and recent refinements by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

The new exam structure allows for a new format and content, quicker exam results, and more testing windows!
