Membership in BLSA will provide you with career opportunities, networking opportunities, and education opportunities. You will learn how to grow in your field, as well as contribute to the knowledge base of your peers.
Membership is offered as a tri-level membership. Joining BLSA also grants membership at the state (AALS) level, and national level (NALS). The opportunities are limitless!
Anyone who works in the legal field can become a member of BLSA. We have courtroom staff, lawyers, legal assistants, paralegals, court reporters, and other legal related fields represented in our membership.
Membership dues are currently $165 for new members, and $29 for student members. The membership application is available on the NALS website here.
The benefits are well worth joining for. A partial list includes: discounts on AFLAC insurance, AVIS Car Rental, FedEx Shipping, Hertz Car Rental, as well as many affiliate partners. BLSA offers job listings, and a monthly bulletin to keep you up to date with the Birmingham legal community. NALS also offers national job listings, certification programs, the NALS On-Demand Library, as well as national conventions that offer even more legal education and networking opportunities!
