ALA's Job Description Toolkit

ALA's Job Description Toolkit was designed to assist legal management professionals and their employer organizations in drafting job descriptions using the ALA Uniform Process Based Management System (UPBMS) taxonomy classification/codes.

It provides a step-by-step guide for writing job descriptions, including sample job descriptions organized by the following areas: Administrative, Finance, Human Resources, Intellectual Property, Legal Support Services, and Marketing and Technology.

Features of this resource include:

  • A guide on creating job descriptions that apply the UPBMS taxonomy
  • A list of resources and tools to use when writing job descriptions
  • A sample of job descriptions using the UPBMS

Each firm and organization is different and perhaps there might be additional areas or topics that need to be included in your job description. Use the Job Description Toolkit, examples and templates as a complement and guide in drafting your customized job descriptions.

The more thought and detail provided in a job description, the more beneficial it becomes during the hiring period and throughout the performance period.

Additional samples and updates to existing samples will be provided as they become available.
