General Information

Pen resting on the spine of a book titled "Law Cases."

  • National Association of Legal Assistants
    The National Association of Legal Assistants provides current information about the profession, continuing education materials and seminars, networking opportunities, professional certification programs, occupational survey findings and manuals to help paralegals excel in the workplace.
  • North Carolina Paralegal Association
    The North Carolina Paralegal Association (NCPA) is a self-governed organization run by paralegals for paralegals. Through its educational and informational network, NCPA strives to help its members better assist the legal community in fulfilling its duty to their clients and the public. NCPA is an affiliate member of the National Association of Legal Assistants.
  • North Carolina State Bar || Board of Paralegal Certification
    The Plan for Certification of Paralegals approved by the NC State Bar and adopted by the NC Supreme Court in 2004 assists in the development of paralegal standards, raises the profile of the paralegal profession, and standardizes the expectations of the public and other legal professionals.
  • Guidelines for Use of Paralegals in Rendering Legal Services
    The Guidelines are intended to facilitate the proper use of paralegals in a law firm by clarifying a lawyer’s professional responsibilities when supervising a paralegal. The Guidelines also assemble in one document the applicable standards (with appropriate comment) for the ready use of lawyers and their employees when determining the permissible bounds of the conduct and activities of paralegals assisting lawyers in the rendition of legal services.
  • North Carolina General Statutes
    The North Carolina General Assembly offers access to the Statutes on the Internet as a service to the public.
  • Judicial Forms Search || NC Administrative Office of the Courts
    A judicial forms search can be done using any one of the following: NCAOC form number, form title, category, or agency.
  • Introduction to Basic Legal Citation
    This introduction to legal citation is focused on the forms of citation used in professional practice rather than those used in journal publication. For that reason, it does not cover The Bluebook's distinct typography rules for the latter. Furthermore, it aims to identify the more important points on which there is divergence between the rules set out in the two manuals and evolving usage reflected in legal memoranda and briefs prepared by practicing lawyers.
  • Purchase The Bluebook : A Uniform System of Legal Citation
    The Bluebook contains three major parts. The first part is the Bluepages, a how-to guide for basic legal citation. The second part is the heart of the Bluebook system of citation: the rules of citation and style. The third part consists of a series of tables to be used in conjunction with the rules. The tables show, among other things, which authority to cite and how to abbreviate properly.
  • Disclaimer Forms Deserve Our Attention || Digital Paralegal Services Blog
    From the entry: "Have you ever noticed that everyone seems to have a different disclaimer and confidentiality notice which they use on emails and fax cover sheets? I recently began collecting the forms which come to me through email via direct email, list serves, or other sources. Needless to say, they vary widely in form."
