Welcome to the South Dakota Paralegal Association's website!  SDPA is a thriving association committed to the professional development of paralegals within the legal community.  We are made up of paralegals from across the state, practicing in many different areas of the law, and from all walks of life.

If you are a paralegal or you are interested in becoming one, you are in the right place.  Our members enjoy quarterly newsletters packed with articles on different topics, grammar tips, legal news, and fun items too.  We also provide two full-day seminars each year, one in conjunction with the State Bar Convention, and we host various social events.  If you’re looking to advance your career, we have a leadership program, study groups for the certification exam, and scholarships to help you with costs.  If you’re looking to make professional connections, we have several committees where you can meet and work alongside other paralegals.  More information about the benefits we offer can be found within our website, and we have a special tab for membership information. 

Thank you for visiting SDPA!
