Advanced Certified Paralegals

Advanced Certified Paralegals

The Advanced Certified Paralegal (ACP®) Program is designed to recognize a paralegal’s commitment to continued growth and life-long learning by advancing your knowledge on specific areas of law.

An assessment component is part of the curriculum-based program, as well as interactive exercises. The average course is about 20 hours in length and organized into multiple chapters, so you can earn up to 20 hours of CLE for completing an ACP course. These web-based courses are available on a 24/7 basis.

Anyone can take an ACP course; you do not have to be a NALA Certified Paralegal. However, the distinguished ACP credential is only available to current Certified Paralegals. Upon successful completion of the program, a CP can earn the Advanced Certified Paralegal (ACP) credential and the continuing education hours.

The ACP credential has been awarded to more than 3,500 paralegals since its inception in 2006.

Advanced Certified Paralegal course offerings: 

*CLE for taking an ACP course will only be given after successful completion the first time.  If the course is taken more than once, CLE is not granted for the additional completions.
