NC State Bar Paralegal Certification
The NC State Bar deems graduation from an ABA approved program to be satisfaction of the educational requirements to become a North Carolina Certified Paralegal. If a paralegal program is not ABA approved, students must be sure that it is otherwise qualified by successfully applying to the Board of Paralegal Certification.
All ABA approved programs are qualified paralegal studies programs. If your program is not ABA approved, the program may be “qualified” by applying to the Board of Paralegal Certification. The application for qualification can be found in the documents section of this website. If the administration of your program cannot apply for qualification, you may complete and submit the application for the program.
