CCPA is offering graduates of the Cuesta College paralegal program one free registration to one of CCPA’s regular mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) luncheons, good for one year from the student’s graduation month. The registration includes the educational program and lunch. Interested students should contact CCPA to obtain information about upcoming programs, to reserve a spot at a program of his or her choice, or with any questions.
One of the ways CCPA achieves its goal of promoting and supporting the paralegal profession is by offering continuing education opportunities to its membership and to the community. The programs allow attorneys and paralegals the opportunity to receive credits towards required mandatory continuing education. CCPA also puts on an annual conference. This year’s Paralegal Symposium will take place on Saturday, October 21st. Attendees can earn up to four MCLE credits, including three ethics credits.
Under Business and Professions Code 6450, paralegals must earn four units of general MCLE credit and four units of ethics credits every two years.
