The Scottish Paralegal Association (SPA) was formed in 1993 to promote the interests of paralegals in Scotland. We are a voluntary not for profit association with an elected committee bound by a constitution.
The SPA is the only association recognised by the Law Society of Scotland as the body representing the interests and promoting the development of Paralegals in Scotland. The SPA holds amongst its membership paralegals who operate in a wide variety of roles within the legal profession assisting solicitors in many different areas of law. The SPA acts in the best interests of the members by promoting and representing their collective opinions and views. We have in place a firmly established membership criteria and code of conduct. All of which, when combined with a requirement of continued professional development (CPD), provides confidence in members of the SPA and their ability to deliver legal services in a competent and professional manner.
