About Us


Paralegals play an essential part in the legal profession. That's why the State Bar of Wisconsin and Paralegal Association of Wisconsin came together to create the State Bar of Wisconsin Certified Paralegal™ program.

A paralegal with the SBWCP™ designation is a professional of the highest caliber, demonstrating:

  • Wisconsin-specific education and experience
  • Dedication to continued education
  • Credibility and professional excellence

Certification Review Board and Process


After receiving each applicant's materials, the Certification Review Board determines if the applicant meets the requirements of certification or recertification.
