Classroom Change – LEX 287

27 Mar

Thursday, March 27 – LEX 287 (CLA Review) has been moved from Collins 239 to Collins 201.

NALA Application Deadline is Tuesday, April 1st.

27 Mar

No joke. No April Fools’. Get that application in! Remember that you may need to have the graduation waiver paperwork notarized and signed by Ms. Sutton, so don’t wait until the last minute.

Need a little extra time? NALA will accept your application until April 10th with a $25 late fee. But do not push that deadline; NALA doesn’t take applications after the deadline no matter how much you beg, plead, or offer them donuts or pizza.

The fee for the Certified Paralegal examination application is $250 for NALA members and $275 for non-members of NALA.

NALA’s retake fees are $60 per section. This means that if you goof up in a section, you don’t have to take the whole exam again, just that one section. 

Are you a veteran? The Certified Paralegal examination program has been approved by the Veterans Administration under the licensing and certification benefit. The VA will pay the examination fee for qualified veterans. For further information, see

Personal checks ARE NOT accepted for payment of examination fees. Payment may be made either by cashier’s check, money order, firm check, VISA, Master Card, Discover, or American Express.

Need more information? Check out the DTCC Paralegal Program blog’s certification page.

And while you’re thinking about the exam, think about how completely awesome it’s going to be to have that “CP” designation next to your name when you’re sending out your resume! 



Well, that answers that question.

If this ever comes up on a Criminal Law exam, you’ll know the answer.
