CAPITAL AREA PARALEGAL ASSOCIATION

Texas Alliance of Paralegal Associations

What Is TAPA?  
 
The Texas Alliance of Paralegal Associations (TAPA) was formed in 1982 when representatives of local paralegal associations in Texas met to exchange ideas and establish a network for communication and support. TAPA offers an opportunity at its meetings for the exchange of ideas and information on continuing education activities, programs, publications, membership, public relation projects, and recent legislation and case law. TAPA supports the formation and continued development of paralegal associations. TAPA is a voluntary professional organization of participating associations that alternate as hosts for meetings which are held once a year (in the spring) in different cities throughout Texas. Each association presents verbal and written presentations on its professional growth and progress. Each association is represented by two delegates; however, all members of participating associations are welcome to attend the meetings as observers.

TAPA now includes 24 participating associations that work together to further the profession’s purposes and objectives by:
  • promoting the paralegal profession;
  • monitoring and participating in developments in the paralegal profession;
  • developing and maintaining a statewide communications network among paralegal associations;
  • developing and maintaining communications with other members of the legal community; and
  • encouraging and enhancing continued education and professional growth of legal assistants/paralegals.
