NALS, the association for legal professionals, was established in 1929 to help enhance the careers and knowledge of legal staff (paralegals, secretaries, court reporters, etc.). NALS is a tri-level association with NALS at the national level, Texas ALP as the state level and NALS of Amarillo as the local chapter. NALS of Amarillo provides continuing legal education (CLE), certification, information, and training for those in a legal service career. The Amarillo chapter hosts monthly Lunch and Learn CLEs where invited speakers educate legal staff on current issues and changes within the legal profession. NALS also hosts a Spring Professional Development & Education Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The next NALS Annual Conference will be October 17-20 in Atlanta, GA. In 2014, Texas ALP will be holding their Annual Conference in Lubbock.
