The Smoky Mountain Paralegal Association (SMPA), is an affiliated association of NALA - The Paralegal Association. SMPA welcomes new members. While our emphasis is on promoting paralegals in Tennessee, SMPA does not restrict membership by state of residence or employment and has welcomed paralegals from other states who wanted to take advantage of our membership benefits.

Membership in the Smoky Mountain Paralegal Association is open to paralegals, students in paralegal programs, attorneys, law firms, corporations and businesses promoting the paralegal profession, and educational institutions providing paralegal programs.
