Answer

C

Since 1976, the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) has administered a temporary certificate that is good until the candidate completes a bachelor's degree. This certificate allows individuals to work as a certified legal assistant before completing their bachelor's degree. Once the degree is completed, the individual can then take the Certified Legal Assistant Exam (CLAE) to become a permanent Certified Legal Assistant (CLA).
