Our calendar is filled with activities throughout the year offering numerous opportunities to network with other legal professionals, whether it’s one of our bi-monthly membership meetings or our annual CLE Convention.
In 2010, SJPA rolled out its New Jersey Certified Paralegal (NJCP®) program! This was a huge milestone for SJPA voting members who now have the ability to become credentialed as a New Jersey Certified Paralegal (NJCP®). Information on the program requirements is available under the “Knowledge Center” tab, where you have the ability to download an application.
Whether you’re following us on Facebook, connecting with other members via LinkedIn or “tweeting” about the latest regulations, SJPA is an important part of your profession and keeping you informed.

held Friday, March 30, 2012
|BCC Enterprise Center|
|3331 Route 38, Mount Laurel, NJ|
SJPA hosted its own full day annual convention! The Convention was held at The Enterprise Center (convention center) in Mt. Laurel, which is located on the grounds of Burlington County College. (The convention is not affiliated with BCC in any way.)
SJPA's amazing lineup of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars covered various areas of the law. The seminars were geared toward all paralegal levels – beginner (student), intermediate, and advanced - and were relevant to all paralegals, regardless of their specialty. All seminars qualified for CLE credits for those attendees holding an NJCP or RP certification.
