Creating Connections – Building Bridges…. Together


Welcome to the San Francisco chapter of Legal Secretaries, Incorporated®

Our objective is continuing legal education and networking within the legal community.  The San Francisco Legal Professionals Association (“SFLPA”) is one of more than 50 member associations throughout California of Legal Secretaries, Incorporated® (LSI). SFPA was established in 1936 and incorporated in 1962.  Both LSI and SFLPA are nonprofit corporations.  SFLPA’s objectives are to unite individuals employed in the legal field so that ideas may be exchanged and knowledge increased.  Our primary function is to raise and maintain standards of excellence by its members, provide educational opportunities, and offer leadership and guidance, much the same way the State Bar of California functions for its members, by offering SFLPA members opportunities for continuing education, networking, and employment referrals.  We invite you to become a member!  Please visit our Membership, Calendar, and/or Newsletters, the Hearsay, pages for complete information regarding any of our Upcoming Events.
