Limited Practice Rule for Nonlawyers Approved June 15

June 15, 2012 Washington Supreme Court Order #25700-A-1005 Consistent with GR 25 (the Supreme Court rule establishing the Practice of Law Board), the rule establishes a framework for the licensing and regulation of non-attorneys to engage in discrete activities that currently fall within the definition of the "practice of law" (as defined by GR 24) and which are currently subject to exclusive regulation and oversight by this Court. The rule itself authorizes no one to practice. It simply establishes the regulatory framework for the consideration of proposals to allow non-attorneys to practice.

Continuing Education

Continuing education for all paralegals is NALA's mission. This section provides information about the various programs of NALA. All continuing education programs are available to all who want to participate. NALA members receive significant discounts off registration fees and books.

Continuing Education Council

All NALA continuing education programs are overseen by the association's Continuing Education Council. The council is composed entirely of active members of NALA.  The council also works with Headquarters staff, professional writers, and others in planning and developing educational programs. The chair of the Continuing Education Council is a member of the NALA Board of Directors.

 Types of Programs

NALA CLE programs consist of live educational, online self study programs, and publications.

Web based programs: 

  • NALA Campus LIVE! - Live web seminars are offered in two sessions each year, February-May and August-November. Each session features about 30 on-line seminars. The level of instruction varies - we try to offer programs for novice to advanced level paralegals. Each seminar is repeated within one year and more often, based on demand. Some of the sessions are recorded for those unable to participate in the live program.
  • NALA Campus Self Study Program - These programs use the same technical platform as the NALA Advanced Paralegal Certification programs. They are available on a 24/7 basis. Programs feature instruction much like a slide presentation with text, an audio recording of the text, and tests to determine understanding of the material. These are terrific programs for Certified Paralegal exam preparation, and regular CLE.

 Live Educational Programs

  • Annual Convention Educational Program - Offered each July
  • Certified Paralegal Short Course - An intensive program for Certified Paralegal exam review.


NALA publishes the NALA Manual for Paralegals, and the CP Study Guide and Mock Exam, through Cengage Publishing. In addition, NALA publishes the bi-monthly journal, Facts & Findings. What makes NALA publications unique is that they are developed by experienced paralegals - those who actually know what it is like in the work place. The NALA books are described in this section, with order information.
