Certified Kentucky Paralegals - The KPACC form for Conference attendance is available via this link: KPA 32nd Annual Conference CLE Certificate of Attendance (KPACC Form). Please note that since the Conference is being presented virtually this year, CKPs are responsible for submission of CLE credits directly to the Kentucky Paralegal Association Certification Committee (KPACC). There will be no automatic submission of CLE credits by the KPA’s Conference Committee. Directions for credit submission are contained on the form.

CERTIFIED KENTUCKY PARALEGAL (CKP) PROGRAM
PURPOSE: The purpose of the Kentucky Paralegal Association’s Certified Kentucky Paralegal Program is to implement Kentucky Supreme Court Rule 3.700 for paralegals in Kentucky by establishing a procedure for paralegal certification, which will promote competence and high standards of professional responsibility, including the Kentucky Paralegal Association’s Paralegal Professional Standards of Conduct. This is accomplished by setting minimum training, work experience, and education requirements for eligibility to be a designated Certified Kentucky Paralegal. The ultimate purpose of this self-regulation program is to improve the quality of legal service in Kentucky and make it more readily available to the public. Certification of qualifications and commitment to high professional and ethical standards by paralegals will lead to appropriate recognition of the substantial and essential contribution paralegals make to the provision of legal services in Kentucky.
QUESTIONS: If you have additional questions regarding the KPA's Certified Kentucky Paralegal Program, please contact the Kentucky Paralegal Association Certification Committee (KPACC) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
