March 1: Paralegals Register in Florida

Beginning March 1, paralegals will be able to voluntarily register with the Florida State Bar under the Florida Registered Paralegal Program. For $150, a paralegal with the required education and experience can apply for registration by filing the necessary form with the State Bar. If the paralegal is approved, the paralegal will be listed on his or her own page in the “Find-an-Attorney” section, specially identified as a “Paralegal.”

Pretty snazzy! This definitely brings a much-desired level of professionalism to the paralegal career.
