We’ve been making lots of changes in the Association recently. If you have not been onto our new website then we encourage you to do so. As part of our changes, we are increasing our online social media presence. We want to have a hub where paralegals can discuss anything and everything paralegal. A place where you can have your say in what you want from the Association. A place where we can inform you about events, meetings, news and the many other ways that we promote the interests of paralegals across Scotland.
Our CPD events and conference also encourage our paralegals to network within their own practice area and those of others. The main focus of our social media presence is to provide a place where all paralegals can discuss or share news from within all legal domains with other paralegals.
We have already had a fantastic reception on social media with our new Scottish Paralegal Association group. One member commented that she had been a “SPA member since the start and working as a paralegal for 27 years! Looking forward to this new group.” To ensure that you are kept up to date with all SPA news and can be the first to buy tickets to our events, just search for Scottish Paralegal Association on your social media search bar and request to join.
You will also be able to buy tickets for our up and coming conference in Dundee via Eventbrite using the link on our website.
If you don’t use social media, don’t worry: we will continue to update you by email.
As always, we encourage our members to contact us with any suggestions or questions. We can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
