Note:  You do not have to be a certified or registered paralegal to become a member!

MCAP members participate in our monthly CLE seminars at no additional cost, and benefit from small seminar groups that afford one-on-one interaction with attorney speakers and other attendees.  CLE seminars are currently held at Central United Methodist Church, 1875 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004, at 6:15 p.m. one night each month (usually the second Wednesday) or on the second Saturday of the month at 9:30 a.m. (these are subject to change due to venue and speaker availability). The evening seminars are one-hour CLEs, and the Saturday morning seminars are two-hour CLEs.

Our CLE seminars focus on current events and areas of law of interest to our members. Many of our members are not NALA-certified and attend meetings to expand their legal knowledge, learn current trends, and to network with other paralegals.  Members and interested parties receive monthly invitations via email regarding each seminar, and the seminars are also posted on the website under the CLE Events tab. See the CLE Events tab for a summary of recent CLE topics.


MCAP is an affiliate of the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). NALA is the leading professional association for legal assistants, providing continuing education and professional certification programs for paralegals. NALA is an integral part of the legal community, working to improve the quality and effectiveness of the delivery of legal services and is composed of over 18,000 paralegals nationally. Please note that membership in NALA does not grant you membership in MCAP and vice versa.
