2019 CASA Super Hero Fun Run! 

RPA was a sponsor and several RPA members attended the 2019 CASA Superhero Run on  Saturday, May 4th.  A fun time was had by all and this event is quickly becoming a yearly tradition.  Several of our members assisted the children with a fun activity and some of our members ran or walked the race, while others  put together the activities.

Mission and Purpose

The Richmond Paralegal Association (“RPA”) is a non-profit corporation organized December 8, 1982, under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia.


RPA's mission is to foster professionalism, continuing legal education, public service and networking for paralegals in Central Virginia.


RPA members are from metropolitan Richmond and surrounding counties.

RPA members benefit from network opportunities, continuing education programs, an employment job bank, On The Record quarterly newsletter, affiliation with the National Association of Legal Assistants (“NALA”) and the Virginia Alliance of Paralegal Associations (“VAPA”), and much more.

RPA encourages all members to take an active role in their profession by volunteering in the community through Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society. Through participation in these programs, members find opportunities to network with local attorneys, paralegals, court personnel, and community leaders while gaining invaluable real world experience.

RPA supports new paralegal development at many levels, offering student memberships, providing scholarship opportunities for promising candidates, offering a mentor program to help recent paralegal graduates make the transition from school to successful employment as a paralegal, and hosting a CLA/CP study group to assist members in adding credentialing to their profession.
