Why Join NALS?

The legal support profession is fast-paced and ever-changing, and NALS can help you stay up-to-date on the tools, skills, and resources you need to adapt and grow. Becoming a member helps you stay informed, stay connected to fellow legal professionals, improve your skill set, and support your career, all while ensuring that there is a large organization able to advocate on your behalf for the issues that matter most.

Our community forums will allow you to expand your knowledge and mentor/learn from peers who share your passion and interests. Whether you're looking to learn more about e-Discovery, the latest on revocable trusts, share your legal writing expertise, or connect with others in the industry, NALS allows you to create forum topics based on your needs! 

Get involved in your local and state NALS chapters to enjoy events, education and networking with colleagues near you. While traveling, see if there's a chapter near your destination and meet other members around the country!
