Happy Anniversary to the Florida Registered Paralegal Program

March 1, 2009 was the first year anniversary of the Florida Registered Paralegal Program (FRP), which has over 3,000 paralegals registered. “The interest in the program has far exceeded our expectations,” said Lori Holcomb, Florida Registered Paralegal Counsel at the Florida Bar.

The program certification and registration is voluntary. Applicants can qualify for the FRP designation in three ways: 1) various combinations of work experience or education, 2) NALA or NFPA certification, or 3) verification of eight prior years of paralegal work experience. To maintain these credentials, Florida Registered Paralegals must provide evidence of 30 hours of continuing legal education credits, including 5 hours of professionalism or ethics, over a three-year period.
