NALS, Inc. - Tulsa, OK
It was 1929 in Long Beach, California, and Eula Mae Jett along with several of her colleagues established a group that met and discussed topics affecting their careers as legal secretaries. The focus of these meetings shifted to education and the popularity grew. These meetings continued and the word of their success spread across the country. By 1949 chapters had developed similar groups and the National Association of Legal Secretaries was formed. NALS began to hold meetings not only on the local level but expanded to include state, regional, and even national meetings focusing on the legal services industry. This was the first time anything of this nature would take place.
NALS was formed and began moving ahead with the goal of enhancing the careers of legal secretaries. As the profession evolved so did NALS. The information needed by legal secretaries was changing along with their job descriptions and the information provided by NALS paralleled this shift. Diversity of membership reflected a changing legal services industry.
After several years of discussion on the topic of a name change to better reflect the nature and membership of NALS, it was determined that NALS would no longer be used as an acronym but rather as a name. This was determined because it was evident something needed to change but the rich history could not be abandoned. NALS determined to go with the new name along with the tag line “…the association for legal professionals” in 1999.
Today NALS remains a leader in the legal services industry offering professional development by providing continuing legal education, certifications, information, and training to those choosing the legal services industry as their career. NALS members represent every area of this industry from paralegals and legal assistants to legal administrators and office managers. Because of this diversity and an openness to welcome all members of the industry, NALS offers a broad spectrum of expertise to make the programs offered valuable to all members of the legal services industry. This allows NALS members to learn about other areas of the industry, making career enhancement as well as advancement easily attainable.

TheLaw.net - San Diego, CA
There's a reason TheLaw.net Corporation starts Year Nine on January 1st.
There's a reason subscribers are gaining on skeptics.
TheLaw.net - www.thelaw.net - delivers a great value.
West and Lexis do not.
The world has changed.
Do you still pay cash for groceries?
Do you still call your broker to check your portfolio?
Do you run home to Katie Couric to find out what happened today?
Then why pay to print?
Why pay to search outside your state?
Why limit yourself to a so-called Plan?
Is somebody maintaining inventory? It's not like there are books involved.
Would you suggest to a loved one that they pursue a career as a law librarian?
The world has changed, but for most, legal research has actually stayed the same.
The truth is that if anything lends itself to the personal computer it is legal research. But, as far as the small law office is concerned West, in particular, continues to leverage its disproportionate market power and economic influence to ensure that the small law office functions exactly as it did in, say, 1960.
In other words, if you practice in Florida, you stay in Florida unless you want to pay a usurious toll to search in, say, Texas. Back in the days of books this was a necessary evil. In the computer age it is simply evil.
Another truth is that if your practice crosses jurisdictional lines or if you simply want the FREEDOM to search across jurisdictional lines, the big guys have nothing for you unless you have a money pile. If you want to do a national search can implicate home equity. It's crazy! And, that's why TheLaw.net is looking a Year Nine.
The success of TheLaw.net has three prongs: (1) more for less, (2) more for less, (3) more for less. Our subscribers are like you. They want to deliver a great value to the client. TheLaw.net has loyal subscribers who:
-Actually prefer TheLaw.net to West or Lexis because TheLaw.net is easier to use, i.e. TheLaw.net is not mind-numbing.
-Stick with TheLaw.net because their practice requires them to search multiple jurisdictions simultaneously and because they are in a small law office, their West or Lexis plan does not include an economically viable solution.
- LOVE that they can search coast-to-coast for $10 a week or LESS!
- LOVE that they can access statutes, rules and regs with a national scope faster.
- LOVE that TheLaw.net Virtual Assistant has their back for purposes of fashioning search queries or delivering anything they can't find for whatever reason directly to your inbox - all FREE!
- LOVE that the only way they pay us more money is if they renew; no usurious surprises.
- LOVE that their renewal rate is consistently LOWER than what they originally paid for their first year. For example, the annual subscription rate for TheLaw.net Convenience Edition is on sale for $495. But, the renewal rate is just $375! TheLaw.net REWARDS your loyalty; novel concept in this business.
- LOVE that their subscription includes:
--1,200 daily newspapers
--Federal and state statutes, CFR, Federal Register and state administrative codes
--nearly 10,000 Federal and state judicial and administrative forms
--hundreds of executive agency databases
--dozens of bill trackers
--thousands of practice area helpers
--business, technology and legal news at the state and local level
--a remarkable index of the nation's leading columnists and commentators
--a massive reference desk that expedites everyday business tasks
TheLaw.net is an inexpensive, highly effective legal research SYSTEM. From Portland, ME to Miami, FL, to San Diego, CA to Seattle, WA and all points in between you CAN get there from here…using TheLaw.net; all at a price that doesn't require further deliberations! And, there's virtually NOTHING to learn.
So, subscribe to TheLaw.net TODAY, save hundreds, add your paralegal for FREE and find out how great it feels to actually be able to do your job the way YOU want to do it. Once you experience legal research without borders, without chains, without strings and fine print, the big guys will simply look like big stingy guys.
