What is SCUPA
The South Carolina Upstate Paralegal Association ("SCUPA") is affiliated with the National Association of Legal Assistants ("NALA"). In furtherance of our affiliation with NALA, we have adopted certain goals, objectives and programs for our organization which include establishing good fellowship among its members and the legal community, and encouraging growth through education and training in our profession. SCUPA also believes in giving back to the communities where members work and live. Throughout the years, our organization has volunteered time and donated funds and goods to numerous local charities like A Child’s Haven, Let There Be Mom, Safe Harbor, Greenville Literacy Association, Harvest Hope, Hands on Greenville and many more. Through pro bono opportunities, SCUPA has been able to foster a sense of community service among its members.
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US!
Founded originally as the Greenville Association of Legal Assistants in 1979, SCUPA has been active in the upstate of South Carolina for over twenty-five years. Our members are paralegals with very diverse legal backgrounds and are employed with most large law firms and corporations in the upstate, as well as many smaller firms and some freelance paralegals. SCUPA also believes in giving back to the communities in which its members work and live. Throughout the years our organization has assisted with needs of many local organizations, as well as members of our community. Through organizations like A Child’s Haven, Serenity Place, Safe Harbor and many more, SCUPA has been able to foster a sense of community service among its members.
SCUPA holds a monthly luncheon on the second Thursday of each month except for October (when we hold our annual seminar) and December (when we have our annual Holiday Party). Many of these luncheons are educational and satisfy Continuing Legal Education requirements. For 2023, the luncheons will be held at Poinsett Club, Greenville, South Carolina.
