Welcome to the FRP Corner, a collection of announcements, news and resources to keep Florida Registered Paralegals informed.
SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE
The ability to reach a dynamic group of individuals and show your support for the paralegal profession here in Florida is now available. With the recent formation of the Florida Registered Paralegal Enrichment Committee by The Florida Bar, the committee’s agenda is to bring more awareness to the legal community. Avenues of communication to the FRP Community and to local associations have been established and are available for companies and organizations to become a sponsor. The level of your event sponsorship provides you with visibility at the events, the FRP Corner, all three FRP social media outlets, and placement in the quarterly FRP eNewsletter.
Platinum: $1,500 – Event signage, FRP Corner, FRP Times, and Social Media
Gold: $1,000 – Event signage, FRP Corner, and FRP Times
Silver: $500 – Event signage and FRP Corner
Bronze: $250 – Event signage
The FRP Enrichment Committee holds two major continuing legal education seminars each year. The CLE events are held at The Florida Bar Winter Meeting in February and then again at the Annual Florida Bar Convention in June. These two events draw paralegals from around the State of Florida. Signage at these events will showcase our sponsors. Promotion on the FRP Corner, in the FRP Times, and on all of our social media platforms will be available based on your level of sponsorship.
If you have the name and contact information for a company or organization that you believe would be a good sponsor for our committee, please provide them with the contact information below:

CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION
Please send us information that you might have regarding continuing legal education opportunities for paralegals around the state. We are always looking for CLE that is on topic and affordable for everyone in our community. The Florida Bar provides some wonderful resources on their website, but it would be nice to know if a local chapter or organization has something planned as well. Please send all CLE information to:
