CP Exam

Established in 1976, the CP (certified paralegal) program is the nation's premiere certification procedure for paralegals. Today, over 11,000 have earned the use of this professional designation and the CP program is recognized throughout the United States as a means of identifying competent paralegals.

The Certifying Board for Paralegals is responsible for the content, standards and administration of the CP Program.

Graduates of all academic programs at National Paralegal College are eligible to sit for the CP Exam.

You can learn more about the CP program in greater detail in the Certified Paralegal Program booklet.
