Western New York Paralegal Association
The Western New York Paralegal Association, Inc. (WNYPA) is a voluntary, nonprofit association formed in 1976 to promote the professional development and continuing legal education of paralegals in the Western New York area. Over our almost thirty-year history, the Association has worked toward its additional goals of maintaining high ethical standards for paralegals, educating the Western New York legal and business communities in the effective utilization of paralegals, and promoting consumer awareness of the role of paralegals within the legal system.
The Western New York Paralegal Association, Inc. evolved from the efforts of several paralegals who foresaw the advantages to be gained by joining together with others who were similarly employed.
