Paralegal Certification from the State Bar of Wisconsin
When the Paralegal Association of Wisconsin asked us to create a certification program for paralegals, we jumped
at the opportunity. The State Bar of Wisconsin Certified Paralegal™ program acknowledges paralegals for their
experience, commitment to continuing education, and vital role in the legal profession.
Endorsed by the Paralegal Association of Wisconsin, the SBWCP™ credential publicly recognizes Wisconsin’s most
highly qualified paralegals, able to perform substantive legal work under the direction of a Wisconsin-licensed lawyer.
This voluntary certification demonstrates a paralegal’s dedication to professional development and excellence.
State Bar of Wisconsin Certified Paralegals must meet the program’s exacting education and experience
requirements. In addition, they attend ongoing legal education to polish their skills and ensure they’re
up-to-date on the latest changes and trends.
