                                                 ARKANSAS CHAPTER

Over the past 30 years the Arkansas Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators has been on the forefront of the legal management profession.  Since its inception in 1981, legal management professionals across the state have turned to the Arkansas Chapter as their connection to knowledge, resources and networking.

We welcome and serve professionals in law firms, legal departments and other legal-related organizations.  Chapter members include management professionals from Arkansas's oldest law firms as well as those from much smaller firms.  National law firms with offices in Arkansas are also represented.  We also have members from defense firms, as well as plaintiff firms.  Our members range from office administrators, HR managers, technology managers and financial administrators.  The depth and breadth of our members' experience and knowledge in the business of law is what makes our organization, and especially our chapter, so valuable.  

 The chapter was awarded the Platinum Level Chapter designation at the ALA's Annual Conference in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.  The chapter was awarded the Presidents' Award of Excellence in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
