In 2020, our parent organization changed its name to Legal Professionals, Incorporated (LPI) to reflect being an organization whose membership is inclusive of all California legal professionals.  The LPI membership roster is 1,500 members strong with 32 local associations throughout California.  LPI’s motto (which we here in DPLPA enthusiastically support) is “Excellence through Education” and it is a pivotal part of the goals and objectives of LPI and DPLPA.  When you join the Desert Palm Legal Professionals Association, not only are you able to access the local benefits of joining, but you are also eligible to access a variety of programs and services:

  • Continuing education and professional development
  • Certification through the California Certified Legal Secretary (CCLS®) program
  • Membership in the Legal Specialization Sections
  • The Legal Secretary® (published quarterly)
  • LPI Legal Professional’s Handbook (published by The Rutter Group)
  • Law Office Procedures Manual (published by The Rutter Group)
  • Networking with other legal professionals
  • Membership benefits and discounts
  • Legal Professionals, Incorporated is an MCLE provider

We offer educational and professional programs, many of which are lunchtime learning, evening and weekend educational workshops.  LPI conferences are held May, August, November, and February at various locations throughout California, hosted by a local LPI association. During the pandemic, we have been meeting virtually which makes attending incredibly affordable and attainable.  Continuing educational seminars and workshops are offered at each conference conducted by respected attorneys, judges and educators.
