Georgia Paralegal Requirements & Resources

Becoming a Paralegal in Georgia

Georgia does not place any education or certification requirements on those seeking to become a paralegal.  Prospective paralegals may become a paralegal through on-the-job training opportunities or by pursuing a certificate program, an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree.

However, the Georgia Association of Paralegals has established voluntary standards for entry-level paralegals.  They recommend that a paralegal has earned:

  • Certificate from an American Bar Association (ABA) approved program
  • Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Paralegal Studies

Professional Paralegal Associations

Georgia Association of Paralegals (GAP)
GAP’s purposes remain the same as when first formulated over 25 years ago: to enhance the role of paralegals in the legal profession; to improve the working conditions of paralegals; and to maintain a continuing relationship with bar associations throughout the state.
