We need your help to fill the 2015 student liaison positions.  If you are currently a student and will not be graduating prior to May 2015, we need your voice to be heard. Prospective candidates must be members of the MCPA, enrolled in a paralegal studies program, and able to attend one Board Meeting a month held in Montgomery County.  Although student liaisons do not have voting power, they can provide input to the Board on behalf of their fellow students regarding their needs and how the Association can better serve them.  Student liaisons also assist with coordinating speaking events and informational sessions between the MCPA and their respective schools.

If you are interested, please submit a short bio/resume to Lisa LaPenna at (610) 684-2114 (fax) or  Please include the name of your school, expected graduation date, job (if you have one), any legal experience, and any other organizations with which you may be affiliated.  I will review and submit to the Board for final approval.  This is a networking opportunity, which can benefit your career search as a paralegal.

If you have any questions, please call Lisa LaPenna at (610) 941-2523.
