LAPA Pro Bono Fair

The Los Angeles Paralegal Association (“LAPA”)’s website states it “is dedicated to developing, strengthening, and advancing the paralegal profession. LAPA provides networking opportunities, continuing legal educational programs, and pro bono activities for paralegals and members of the legal community throughout the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area.” I like this opening because it acknowledges the link between networking, CLE, pro bono work and the advancement of the paralegal profession – a topic of several posts on this blog.

Some professional associations just talk the talk, but LAPA also walks the walk. It not only has a webpaage at its site dedicated to pro bono activities, it has announced it’s annual pro bono fair. This is an excellent idea for paralegal professional associations, although it likely works better in larger metropolitan areas. Here some info from the announcement and the link to the LAPA site where the announcement appears:
