About ALA

The Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) was formed in 1971 to provide support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments, and government legal agencies.  The first Chapter formed here in Richmond in 1972 with fewer than 10 members.  Today, however, ALA has more than 10,000 members structured in six regions that are comprised of 100 Chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and New Zealand.
