TBLS is pleased to announce the official launch of our new website specifically for the Paralegal Specialization program. This site is an informational, public-facing web site designed to promote the presence, and exclusive status, of the TBLS paralegal certification process. It also acts as an Intranet for the Board Certified Paralegal (BCP) community and Texas attorneys interested in specialized paralegal matters.
We have just concluded final stages of development and want you to have the first look this weekend of our new site at www.tbls-bcp.org. This is only the initial phase of the website with plans for more video, online member services and social media options.
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization would greatly appreciate your feedback and/or comments, please let us know what we can do to enhance the site.
