What's Happening at Headquarters July/August 2019


The Association is exploring an Organizational Pricing Model for membership in ALA. It is meant to encourage organizations to extend membership to all legal management professionals who can benefit from our offerings and is based on the number of attorneys within an entire organization (i.e., all office locations, including international, of an organization = “entire organization”). Employees of an organization are eligible to become ALA members, at no additional cost to the organization. ALA is currently gauging interest and investigating potential adoption rates for a phased rollout.
