Welcome to the ALA Austin Chapter

The Association of Legal Administrators is an international organization with nearly 10,000 members representing law firms and corporate legal departments from all over the world. The Austin Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators was chartered in 1978 and has grown from 9 original members to over 85 members representing 45 law firms and legal departments in the Austin area today.

Our chapter goal is to connect our members with opportunities for personal and professional growth through knowledge, resources and networking. We do this in a number of ways, but most effectively by hosting monthly educational sessions featuring speakers who address timely topics directly relating to the management and administration of law offices and legal departments. Our members also enjoy other Austin Chapter offerings throughout the year that provide opportunities to cultivate relationships with colleagues, business partners and the Austin community that nourish long lasting support networks.
