Global Flags

Educational sessions at Annual Conference hold broad appeal and are generally of interest to all attendees, regardless of home country. However, ALA recognizes that our international attendees have some unique interests and concerns and we will make every effort to accommodate them. We will be offering an International Idea Exchange where legal management professionals from around the world can come together and discuss the unique issues that affect your firms. And we are bringing back the International Lounge where attendees from outside the United States can meet each other in an inclusive environment.



Here Are Some of the International Events Taking Place During Conference:

International Attendee Lounge
  • Monday, April 15  11 a.m.–5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 16  1–5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 17  1–4 p.m.

We invite attendees from outside the United States to join us in the International Lounge. Light refreshments will be provided in this lounge intended for use by our international attendees as a designated space to meet each other and network with other like-minded individuals from around the world. 

International Idea Exchange (INTIE)
  • Sunday, April 14  3:15–4:30 p.m.

The International Idea Exchange is the ideal place to meet legal management professionals from around the world, connect with other international attendees and discuss the unique issues affecting your firms. Discussion topics may include issues that are common to managing legal offices anywhere, as well as issues unique to your country. U.S.-based administrators are also welcome to join this discussion.

International Attendee Luncheon
  • Wednesday, April 17 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m.

Please join us for our International Attendee Luncheon. This annual event is an opportunity for attendees from around the world to come together and discuss the unique issues that affect their firms and learn how law firm leaders from other parts of the world handle them. Network with your international peers, share experiences and gain some new insights into how the business of law is different — and the same — across the globe. This event is only open to international attendees.



AC18-International-IconALA has designed our educational program to be relevant to legal management professionals from around the world. However, there are a few sessions that are only applicable to a U.S. audience. View the list of sessions intended for a U.S. audience.
