Regular membership in MALSP is available to any person who is employed by a law firm, corporate law department, government, judicial or legal agency, or any other organization devoted primarily to the practice of law, regardless of the title by which the person is classified within the organization. To qualify for Regular membership, a person must be responsible for duties related to litigation support, the use of organized systems to assist in the analysis of facts and issues involved in the practice of law. Such duties must represent 50% or more of the Regular member's total job responsibilities, and must not include the sale of any such services or related products.
