NALS of Oregon is part of a tri-level organization composed of (national) NALS…the association for legal professionals, state, and local levels. Each offers professional growth through seminars, quality publications and networking.
The chapters located throughout the State of Oregon are listed below. You can access each of their pages from the drop down menu at the top of our site, or by using the links below.
Each local chapter is individually chartered through NALS … the association for legal professionals. Local chapters generally hold monthly meetings and assist the state level with various educational, social, and welfare functions. Currently there are six active chapters in Oregon, and many have monthly educational seminars, or speakers at their monthly meetings.
Membership is also available to individuals in areas where no local chapter exists. These are designated below as Members at Large. Please contact our Membership Director, Rachel Barbour, at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about becoming a member where there is no local chapter.
