Members of MTPA have immediate access to our Job Bank, which includes job postings that never make it to print otherwise! The Job Bank is a must see for paralegals located in the mid-state or for those who are thinking of relocating to the area. Our Job Bank Coordinator is in close contact with area law firms and businesses and is able to provide our members with first hand knowledge regarding various job opportunities for paralegals as they become available. If you are an area attorney, firm or business and would like to submit a posting to our Job Bank, contact our Job Bank Coordinator, Kris at kriscollier@outlook.com for details and information. Not a member? Join now so you too can have immediate access to MTPA's Job Bank!
