ALASKA ASSOCIATION OF PARALEGALS

Alaska's Statewide Association for the Paralegal Community

HISTORY & PURPOSES


The Alaska Association of Paralegals (AAP), formerly known as the Alaska Association of Legal Assistants (AALA), was founded in May 1981 as a non-profit professional membership association of Alaska paralegals committed to the development and growth of the paralegal profession. AAP is governed by a board of directors selected by the full members at its annual meeting held in May. Board of Director meetings are held the first Thursday of each month. Monthly luncheon meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, featuring guest speakers from throughout the community. AAP also sponsors educational seminars designed to cover many topics in various areas.

AAP publishes a quarterly newsletter which informs our members of upcoming seminars, guest speakers, educational courses and news of current local and national legal and professional developments.

AAP is a member of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA).

AAP’s purposes are:

  • To advance and promote the educational and professional standards of paralegals;

  • To encourage and promote the continuing education of paralegals;

  • To uphold and elevate the standard of honor, integrity and courtesy in the legal profession;

  • To promote, protect and further the public interest;

  • To promote the employment, advancement and education of paralegals, regardless of race, sex, creed, color, national origin, age, sexual orientation or political ideology;

  • To promote a spirit of cordiality among the members of the Association.
