Call for Presentations

The next open Call for Presentations for our Annual Conference will be following our 2020 Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, expected May 2020.


ALA’s Call for Presentations for our 2021 webinars in the fall of 2020. 

We are looking for submissions in all five of our competencies: Communications and Organizational Management, Financial Management, Human Resources Management, Legal Industry/Business Management and Operations Management.

ALA fuels the development and advancement of legal industry professionals by providing both proven solutions and innovative thinking in an inviting and exciting environment.

We are seeking your creative participation in designing solutions that optimize learning by providing the very best, high-level, relevant and thought-provoking ideas pertinent to the legal administration profession. This call is not for any specific conference, but may be considered for any number of our live, in-person or virtual learning events.

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Is the quality topic content current, relevant, pragmatic and concise?
  • Will the session answer the "how" to legal management issues?
  • Has the presenter(s) received positive ratings in the past?
  • Will the session appeal to seasoned administrators and managing partners?
  • Is the session well organized and designed to meet the needs of this particular audience?
  • All speakers at ALA conferences are required to agree to ALA’s educational content policy. (See Submission and Selection Process.)

The Process:

  • Learn about the submission and selection process.
  • Create an account.
  • Add your bio.
  • Add your co-presenters.
  • Submit your presentations for proposal.
  • Wait for an answer.

Please Note

  • Presentations cannot be sales pitches.
  • We purposely strive to present conference education that is diverse in nature so that it enriches the learning experience for our members.
  • All speakers at ALA conferences are required to agree to ALA’s educational content policy. The policy makes clear that educational content presented by the speaker at an ALA conference becomes the property of ALA. Speakers will grant ALA a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide license to capture, live stream, record, use and archive speaker’s presentation and handout materials (collectively “Speaker Property”) in any manner ALA deems appropriate including, but not limited to, the reproduction, translation, distribution, creation of derivative works, and display on the internet of all or any excerpt of Speaker Property, with ALA retaining the proceeds derived from such distribution and use of Speaker Property. The speaker also agrees to work directly with the company performing these services for ALA, if any, and understands that the sale of Speaker Property by ALA is primarily for the educational benefit of ALA’s membership and not for monetary gain; and therefore, there is no royalty arrangement between Speaker and ALA.
