Western Kentucky Paralegals

Welcome to Western Kentucky Paralegals

Western Kentucky Paralegals was formed in 1992 to provide support and guidance for paralegals in the Western Kentucky area.

WKP's goals are to provide continuing legal education and ethical guidelines to its members and increase community awareness of the paralegal profession. Continuing legal education is required to maintain WKP active membership.

As an affiliate of the NALA (National Association of Legal Assistants), WKP has adopted the Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility of NALA and its members agree to be bound by the Code.

WKP encourages its members to take the CP (Certified Paralegal) exam administered by NALA, as well as the CKP (Certified Kentucky Paralegal) exam administered by the KPA (Kentucky Paralegal Association).
