Association Spotlight: New York City Paralegal Association

The New York City Paralegal Association was started in May 2007. Through the years we've had some time to learn and grow with our members. We've learned that just like our city, we are not always predictable. We've learned that we all want what's best for our communities and for our profession. Read more from the New York City Paralegal Association.
