CP Exam

Established in 1976, the CP (certified paralegal) program is the nation's premiere certification procedure for paralegals. Today, over 11,000 have earned the use of this professional designation and the CP program is recognized throughout the United States as a means of identifying competent paralegals.

The Certifying Board for Paralegals is responsible for the content, standards and administration of the CP Program.

Graduates of all academic programs at National Paralegal College are eligible to sit for the CP Exam.

CP Review Course

National Paralegal College offers a two-month review course to prepare students and alumni for the CP Exam. The review course starts approximately two months before each examination date.

The review course is taught by an NPC attorney/instructor who is experienced not only in the subject matter covered on the exam, but also in general test preparation techniques for exams such as the SAT and the LSAT.

The review course is available to all NPC students and alumni. There is no additional tuition cost, but purchase of books is required.

NALA has recently published information about the new, redesigned CP Exam. NPC is carefully evaluating the material. In the interim, we recommend that students who are considering taking the CP Exam review the following resources:
