All certification is voluntary and a paralegal is allowed to work within the field without being certified or registered. However, many paralegals strive to advance their knowledge and become certified. Paralegals, attorneys, and others working in the legal field should be mindful that a Paralegal Certificate and a Certified Paralegal are not interchangeable and are vastly different.
Some states offer their own certified program, however, Minnesota and North Dakota do not have any such programs.
