What is the ALA?


The Association of Legal Administrators was founded in 1971 to provide support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government legal agencies.   ALA remains at the forefront of the legal environment, promoting professional legal management practices throughout the industry.  ALA serves as the connection to knowledge, resources and networking for its members and business partners.



Where does the Raleigh Durham Chapter fit in?


The Raleigh Durham Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators is comprised of over 60 members representing law firms and legal service departments in and around the Raleigh-Durham area and eastern North Carolina.  This chapter was formed over 30 years ago to provide a local forum to support and encourage the professional development of legal management professionals through interaction with their legal management peers and legal services business partners in an education-focused environment. 

The Raleigh Durham ALA Chapter shares the mission
of the Association of Legal Administrators’, which is to improve the quality of management in legal services organizations; promote and enhance the competence and professionalism of legal administrators and all members of the management team; and represent professional legal management and managers to the legal community and to the community at large.
