Oregon Paralegal Association (OPA)

Calling all Paralegals and Legal Assistants! Your participation in the Oregon Paralegal Association (OPA) 2017 Annual Surveys is needed! There are three different surveys in which to participate:

  1. Annual Salary Survey
  2. Paralegal Student Survey
  3. OPA Member Survey

Know Your Current and Future Worth. For a few minutes of your time, you can compare your pay and benefits to others performing the same job, and find out if you're being fairly rewarded. Learn the particulars of compensation plans and career satisfaction levels of Oregon and SW Washington paralegals. Leverage this data to evaluate new career possibilities and trajectory as a new paralegal or to assess your current career progress by participating in OPA's 2017 Annual Surveys. The reports generated from the results of these surveys will be made available in November 2017.

The 2017 OPA Annual Surveys are now available using SurveyMonkey. We urge you to complete all surveys that apply to you and to forward the links to other paralegals, legal assistants or paralegal students so that they can participate, as well. 

The survey period begins July 1, 2017 and ends August 15, 2017 at midnight. The Annual Survey Committee will then compile the results into three distinct and valuable reports in time for OPA's Annual Meeting in November, with publication immediately following the event. Please assist OPA in collecting relevant data by completing these surveys today. Thank you.
