WELCOME TO PACO!
We work to promote the interests of paralegals, foster relationships with the legal community, serve the public, advocate the Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, and endorse the mission of PACO.
Members of PACO automatically become members of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) and have the option to join the Columbus Bar Association (CBA) as an associate member.
Awards of Excellence PACO annual awards are to recognize excellence in an individual Paralegal who demonstrates to the community their strengths and commitment in the profession and to PACO. This year PACO will also recognize an award of excellence for a Sustaining Member of the Year and a Law Firm/Legal Department of the Year. Be sure to submit your ballot...
The OSBA Paralegal Committee is for paralegal professionals interested in the professional development for paralegals. The committee's goal is to provide a resource to help members communicate with each other and share resources.
Mark your calendar and save the date for the next OSBA Paralegal Committee meeting scheduled for April 24, 2021 from 10 a.m. - Noon via Zoom. When registration is open PACO will post that information.
Founded in 1974, NFPA was the first national paralegal association. Created as a non-profit federation, NFPA is an issues-driven, policy-oriented professional association directed by its membership. It is comprised of more than 50 member associations and represents over 9,000 individual members reflecting a broad range of experience, education and diversity. Visit the NFPA site for more information.
PACO is always on the lookout for new paralegal members interested in promoting and supporting our chosen profession. One of the ways paralegals can accomplish this is by membership in the only professional association in central Ohio solely devoted to serving the needs and interests of paralegals.
