"The American legal system is vital to protecting the constitutional principles on which our Nation was founded. By contributing to our fair and equitable system of justice, paralegals help advance the ideals that make our country strong. The National Association of Legal Assistants improves the legal profession by providing educational development and promoting the discussion of opportunities and issues facing paralegals."
