If your office has several eligible paralegals, consider the Organization Membership, which provides the same benefits at a reduced rate. An Organization Membership allows companies to offer all of our benefits to each of the paralegals on their staff* for one flat rate.

Your investment in annual dues for NALA organization membership depends on the number of paralegals in your organization who are enrolling.

If your organization has employees who already have a NALA membership, please call us for an adjusted invoice.

*All members must qualify for an Active Membership in order to enroll in an Organization Membership.
