TBLS, the initials that set Texas attorneys and paralegals apart

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on July 12, 2009

tblsDid you know that Texas is one of only a few states that has a special certification exam for paralegals? This exam, administered by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization was created in the early 1990s and continues to be the preeminent certification in the State of Texas. In 2008, the “Texas Paralegal Journal” dedicated an issue to certification of paralegals.  Two articles on the TBLS exams continue to be relevant and worth rereading, if you are considering sitting for any of the TBLS exams. The first article details the history of the TBLS exams and how to apply to take an exam.  The second article covers the process after certification including the necessary CLE to keep the certification current.

The TBLS designation is prestige in the State of Texas, especially since it is the only designation that attorneys and paralegals can share. If you have any questions or need information about the TBLS exams, please visit the TBLS website at www.tbls.org.
