Los Angeles Paralegal Association – “Spotlight on Paralegals”

Just received this tiny reminder. Contact me at if you’re interested in attending. Remember, major events such as this will get you extra credit:

On October 18, 2008, the Los Angeles Paralegal Association (“LAPA”) will be offering a variety of Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (“MCLE”) seminars, networking opportunities, and a resume tune-up at its 32nd Annual October Conference, “Spotlight on Paralegals” at the Downtown Los Angeles Omni Hotel. This year’s October Conference shines the spotlight on the diverse spectrum of paralegals while providing a great range of networking opportunities. This year’s MCLE seminars at this event will include Employment Law, Real Estate, Estate Planning, Corporate-Blue Sky, Legal Writing, Probate, Bankruptcy, e-Discovery, and Ethics.  There will also be a large display of legal vendors / exhibitors that serve the Los Angeles legal community.  Professional recruiters from the Los Angeles area who thoroughly understand the multitude of specialties within the paralegal industry will also be in attendance at this year’s LAPA October Conference.  These professionals can offer attendees valuable advice on current paralegal trends, suggest improvements on resumes, and can be key sources in connecting individuals with their next job interview.  This event, which will have approximately 250 attendees, provides an excellent way to help paralegals grow both personally and professionally.  This event will also be an excellent way for students to network!

As you know, California Paralegal MCLE requirements changed in January 2007.  Specifically, “Every two years, commencing January 1, 2007, any person that is working as a paralegal shall be required to certify completion of four hours of mandatory continuing legal education in legal ethics and four hours of mandatory continuing legal education in either general law or in an area of specialized law.”1  The LAPA October Conference can assist attendees with obtaining 3.50 hours of MCLE credit.

Attached please find the LAPA October Conference Registration Form.  If possible, please print the attached form and distribute it to your students.  Please also mention to your students that they can also register for the LAPA October Conference via the LAPA website,  Additionally, all ‘walk-ins’ are welcome! 

LAPA thanks you for your continued support!
