Who is NALS?

NALS was founded in 1949 as the National Association of Legal Secretaries with the goal of enhancing the careers of legal secretaries. As the profession evolved so did NALS. The information needed by legal secretaries was changing along with their job descriptions and the information provided by NALS paralleled this shift. After several years of discussion it was decided to change the name to NALS, the association for legal professionals in 1999. This reflected the many different legal support professionals and their needs.

FAQs - Using the Buyer's Guide

How can I locate relevant companies?

There are two methods to locate companies relevant to your needs.

The most efficient is to utilize the category/sub-category breakdown on the homepage and simply click on the sub-category that most closely relates to your query.

You may also use a keyword or location search to query the entire database of companies. A keyword or location search will pull from all data stored within the guide. You may also further refine your search queries via the category/sub-category drop down menu below the keyword search bar.

How does the RFP/RFI submission tool work?

Certain companies that have elected to include additional information about their products and services have created "profile" pages accessible from search results via a "View Profile" link. This link only appears for companies that elect to create a "profile" page. These companies also provide access to an RFP/RFI submittal tool. This tool allows you to send them a request to bid on your business.

The tool requires that you submit your company name, contact information, and a description of products or services for which you are seeking pricing.

While this tool can be helpful you will usually receive a faster response by calling the company directly.
