Hybrid instructor-led and self-paced courses

ALA’s web-based courses replicate the classroom experience in a virtual setting. You and your cohort of classmates meet online once a week for six weeks, all under the tutelage of the same instructor. (In case you’re unable to attend live or want to review materials, the sessions are recorded.) Each week includes an hour-long instructor-led synchronous session as well as  independent reading, a writing assignment and a quiz to check comprehension. The writing assignments are posted in online forums where you will see responses from your fellow legal administrators. This delivers educational content in a variety of ways to suit different learning styles and professional experiences. 


The curricula are continually updated to account for new developments, such as laws banning salary history questions, beefed-up rules on antiharassment training, and new federal financial programs like the CARES Act.

Register as an ALA member for the package of both courses for the best price. Complete both the first and second course in a series to qualify for the Specialist Certificate exam.

"I have been a Legal Administrator for fourteen years and found this course to be extremely helpful in formalizing my knowledge base of what I do on a day-to-day basis.  The instructor, materials and format were all geared towards making the experience overwhelmingly positive and beneficial.  I highly recommend this course."
