CCPA was founded in 1982 for the purpose of promoting and advancing the paralegal profession on the Central Coast. Our organization provides a forum and meeting place for colleagues to share expertise, exchange ideas, and provide personal support for the benefit of the paralegal profession.
CCPA is a member of the California Alliance of Paralegal Associations (CAPA). CAPA hosts an Annual Educational Conference in June each year in different regions around the state. For more information on registration please visit www.caparalegal.org. You can support CAPA every time you shop on Amazon!

Please do not contact CCPA to request our assistance in the preparation of legal documents unless you are an attorney. Pursuant to California Business and Professions Code §6451, it is unlawful for a paralegal to perform any services for a consumer except as performed under the direction and supervision of the attorney, law firm, corporation, government agency, or other entity that employs or contracts with the paralegal.
