Douglas-Carson Legal Professionals (DCLP) is a local, northern Nevada chapter affiliation of NALS...the Association for Legal Professionals, otherwise known as NALS.  We meet for lunch and CLE once a month at Reds Old 395 Grill in Carson City.

​Our local, non-profit Chapter was chartered in 1985, while NALS was founded in 1929.

The legal support profession is fast-paced and ever-changing, and NALS can help you stay up-to-date on the tools, skills, and resources you need to adapt and grow. Becoming a member helps you stay informed, stay connected to fellow legal professionals, improve your skill set, and support your career, all while ensuring that there is a large organization able to advocate on your behalf for the issues that matter most.

helping our legal services professionals



NALS offers members and nonmembers the opportunity to sit for three unique certifications dedicated to the legal services profession. The exams are of varying levels and are developed by professionals in the industry. Each of the three certifications is developed by NALS and takes advantage of the more than 84 years of experience and dedication to the legal services industry only NALS has to offer. NALS has the certification for you, whether you are beginning a career in the legal industry or are a veteran paralegal ready to display your skills.


NALS conferences are well known for offering great education while creating a fun environment for you to enjoy your time away from the office.  With state meetings and two national conferences, we hope that you can make the most out of your membership and attend a NALS conference!
