Who we are
The Virginia Alliance of Paralegal Associations, formerly: Virginia Alliance of Legal Assistant Associations (the Alliance) was formed by six associations in 1989 and is now comprised of paralegal associations and individual area liaisons located within the Commonwealth of Virginia. It represents over 1,500 paralegals* and students across the state.
PARALEGALS' WEEK 2023
In recognition of the skills and essential professional services paralegals provide to licensed attorneys throughout Virginia, Governor Youngkin has proclaimed Paralegals’ Week as October 1-7, 2023 in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Virginia Registered Paralegal Program
In recognition of the growing need to establish a benchmark to determine qualified paralegals, on November 7, 2015, the Virginia Alliance of Paralegal Associations (VAPA) adopted a Policy on Paralegal Regulation by approving the Virginia Registered Paralegal (VARP™) program, a voluntary paralegal credentialing system.
