I recently received the Paralegal Division membership acceptance letter but need my membership number in order to gain access to the Division’s Members-Only area on the website. Can you please forward my membership number to me?

After you submit an application for membership, the Paralegal Division (PD) forwards your application to te State Bar of Texas Membership Department (normally) on the Wednesday night after your payment is received/processed.  Membership numbers are assigned to new members by the State Bar and returned to us for importing into the PD database the following week.  This import generates a confirmation email to you via your account email address.  Your membership number is your default user id for logging onto the PD website, TXPD.org.  It is listed at the bottom of your member application confirmation email.  Alternatively, you can use your account email address as your user id.

Membership cards are forwarded by mail to the new members within two weeks of receipt of acceptance letter.  If necessary, you can get your membership number by contacting the Membership Department directly at 1-800-204-2222, ext. 1383.

Members are not granted access to the Members-Only area of this website until the PD/SBOT interchange is complete.  The State Bar of Texas Membership Roster is not directly connected to the Division’s website.  Each Sunday, the State Bar’s computer program automatically creates a current list of the Division’s members. Each Monday, the Division is allowed to access the State Bar’s information and download all of the current members in a format to be placed on the Division’s website. Once you receive your confirmation email or your membership card, please check on Tuesday to see if you can gain access to the private area of this website.

Once you can log on, you can view your membership number at the top of the page when you click the Edit My Profile link on the My Account page.
