The Pittsburgh Paralegal Association is a voluntary, non-profit association formed in 1977 to promote the professional development and continuing education of paralegals.  PPA has members from the greater Pittsburgh and surrounding areas and from all areas of law, including law firms, banks, corporations, hospitals and educational institutions.

NOTE:  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of the Pittsburgh Paralegal Association voted unanimously to modify the CLE requirements for voting members for the year 2020.  Instead of the 6 CLE requirement, the requirement for 2020 will be 3 CLEs, one of which needs to be an ethics CLE.  This amended CLE requirement in 2020 is for membership criteria for 2021.  




The Benefits of Membership

The benefits of membership in PPA are numerous and include free lunchtime seminars and CLE programs, access to our job bank, pro bono programs and great networking opportunities.  Members also receive our quarterly newsletter, The Parascope, which contains local and national news regarding the paralegal profession. Membership also provides membership to NFPA, the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, and Keystone Alliance of Paralegal Associations.
