Welcome to the San Antonio Paralegal Association!

The San Antonio Paralegal Association ("SAPA") is a non-profit association established to promote the paralegal profession by utilizing community networks, continuing legal education, and public service. SAPA strives to promote excellence and ethical standards for all members, and supports voluntary national certification to recognize those members who have demonstrated competency in our beloved profession. SAPA is dedicated to the use of networking opportunities to support paralegals and legal professionals in their career growth. 

Join SAPA for fun, friendship and professional growth!


The purpose and goals of SAPA, as stated in our BYLAWS are:

(1)     to promote ethical conduct and high standards within the paralegal profession;

(2)    to promote the utilization of paralegals in rendering effective legal services;

(3)    to educate the general public by broadening the understanding of the function of paralegals; and

(4)    to promote the continuing legal education of paralegals.

As one of the largest paralegal associations in the State of Texas, SAPA's membership generally numbers more than 100 members, who are employed by law firms, corporations, and government agencies in the San Antonio area.  Throughout its 30 plus years of existence, SAPA has worked with local bar associations on various projects to promote the legal profession.  SAPA continually works hard to raise its professional standards and was the second paralegal association in Texas to implement continuing legal education requirements for voting membership.
