Update: February 12th, 2018

 You do not have to be a Certified or Registered Paralegal to become a member, or to attend our CLE seminars!

Paralegals certified through NALA are required to obtain 50 hours of CLE every 5 years; 5 must be in ethics.  Other paralegal certifications, such as Registered Paralegals, also have minimum CLE requirements. MCAP strives to provide 10 or more hours of CLE annually and is the only paralegal organization in the Phoenix area that includes CLE to its members at no additional cost.  MCAP CLE seminars are timely, educational, informative, and offer networking opportunities. If you are not a member, and do not currently receive emails of upcoming CLE seminars, we are happy to add you to the email notification of upcoming seminars. Please send your email address to Lovonte Owens, CP, First V.P. of Education, at:
