Regulations on Paralegels



Answer the following questions

Do you favor the certification of paralegals? Why or why not?

IF certification exists, should it be entry-level, specialty, or both? Why?

Who should control certification? Paralegals? Attorneys? The Government? Why?

When a new local paralegal association is formed, it is often lobbied by NALA and NFPA to become a part of one of these national organizations- The local
association will usually make one of three decisions: affiliated with NALA, affiliate with NFPA, or remain unaffiliated- If you were a member of a local
association faced with the decision of whether to join NALA or NFPA or to stay unaffiliated, what would your vote be and why?

Is it a good idea to have more than one national association? Why or why not?
