ALA's Past Events

The Association of Legal Administrators has specially designed its events to advance the development of professionals from all walks of law.

In 2020, ALA pivoted to ensure that members could still get the great education they've come to expect even though we couldn't meet in person. Each of the events listed below moved to a virtual platform. They included networking opportunities paired with educational sessions for general legal management professionals and functional specialists alike, from human resources and finance to office management and business development. ALA conferences can help you solve the challenges that face your firm or office.

  1. Solve problems with advice from peers who have been there
  2. Make important connections with colleagues and business partners
  3. Discover the latest technologies and solutions in the expo hall
  4. Earn CLE or continuing education credits for your Certified Legal Manager (CLM), HRCI or SHRM certification, or your CPA license.
