Membership to SMCLPA is open to any person engaged in a career in the legal field for at least six (6) months.

A career in the legal field is defined as a legal secretary (including receptionist), legal assistant (including paralegal), court reporter, and law office administrator. It also includes employees of public offices of the United States government, state, cities, counties, or municipalities.

An application for membership must be presented in writing to the Membership Chairman with the appropriate dues, which will be presented to the Board of Directors for approval.

Once approved, new members are installed at a general membership meeting held on the third Tuesday of each month.

Attendance at the general membership meetings is not mandatory, but is encouraged. Most meetings are educational and provide MCLE credit.

When you become a member of SMCLPA, you will receive a password to access our "Members’ Only" page.

Please submit your membership application to April
