The Minnesota Paralegal Association (MPA) is excited to announce the implementation of the MPA Student Affiliation Program for Paralegal Students enrolled in the various paralegal programs in Minnesota. This new program has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn more about the MPA, to become more involved with the MPA, and to aide in the student’s growth, education and professionalism in the paralegal field during their educational program.

Our first “pilot” Student Affiliation Group stems from Winona State University who submitted the Application in August 2014. The nominated Student Affiliated Group Liaison is Alexandra Davis, who will work with the Director of Professional Development in implementing and administering the program.
