The Cleveland Association of Paralegals, Inc. (CAP) began in 1975 and is still going strong today.  CAP has a network of over 160 members and through its affiliations with the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (CMBA) and the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc. (NFPA) has over 14,000 members.  CAP enjoys the support of, and works closely with, many area law firms, corporations, banks, educational institutions, local bar association and the public sector.

Mission Statement

CAP has been, and continues to be, instrumental in allowing paralegals to keep up to date with the rapid growth and technological changes in various legal sectors while advancing continuing education and the individual role of the paralegal in executing legal services.

National Affiliation

Every member of CAP is also automatically a member of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc. (NFPA), the largest national organization representing paralegals in the country.  NFPA provides member associations with information concerning issues affecting paralegals, while at the same time presenting a unified voice for the profession on the national level.

Local Affiliation

Every member of CAP is also a member of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (CMBA) is a nonprofit organization that operates as a center for legal professionalism in the region, promoting the highest ethical and professional standards. It was formed in March 2008 by the consolidation of the Cleveland Bar and Cuyahoga County Bar Associations, which brought together more than 135 years of rich history. It works to advance the greater Cleveland legal community as a world-class center of professional excellence and model of community service.
