NALS of Orange County welcomes new members. Any person may join who is employed in work of a legal nature, including legal secretaries, paralegals, court personnel, law librarians, law office administrators, law office records managers, lawyers, judges, any person employed in the courts, trust departments of banks or trust companies, or in any public or private institution, including the public offices of the United States government, states, cities, counties or municipalities. Our national association is a multi-level association composed of (1) national, (2) state, and (3) local membership. The following are membership choices:

Individual Member - Members receive all publications from each level of our organization (@Law, the national magazine; your local bulletin newsletter "Legalities"; mailings from Region 8; special notices of upcoming events, seminars, and announcements). Members have the opportunity to vote on all national and local offices, and have the opportunity to join other state and local associations as a secondary member. Both annual and life memberships are offered by the national association.

Student Member - Full-time students must be attending an accredited program relating to work of a legal nature. Discounted membership and meeting discounts are available to student members.

Lifetime Member - Any individual may apply for NALS lifetime membership. Dues paid for NALS lifetime membership are nonrefundable, nontransferable, and shall be effective only during such period as the life member qualifies as an individual member.

First-year individual membership in our tri-level association is $115, which includes a one-time processing fee. Student membership is $27 per year.
