ALA History
ALA Through the Decades — a Retrospective

Over the past 40 years, ALA has been at the forefront of the legal management profession. Since its inception in 1971, legal management professionals have turned to ALA as their connection to knowledge, resources and networking.

As ALA celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2011, you are invited to take a brief tour down “memory lane” and look back on the profession and how it, and the association, have changed and evolved over the last four decades. Following is a selection of photos and images, broken down by the decades, of important ALA milestones and events from the last 40 years. We hope you will enjoy looking at them and find them interesting as well as informative. Look closely, you might see yourself or some friends along the journey!
