ALA Central PA Welcome Message

Welcome to the official site of the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (Central PA ALA). The Association of Legal Administrators (ALA), which was founded in 1971, was formed to provide support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government legal agencies. Its members lead their organizations in all facets of management including finance, technology, human resources, marketing, general business management and operations.

ALA has grown into an international association with nearly 10,000 members representing employers in approximately 30 countries. The Association has local Chapters throughout the U. S. and abroad. The Central PA Chapter was chartered in October 1983. As part of ALA, the Central PA Chapter shares the ALA mission to:


  • Promote and enhance the competence and professionalism of all members of the legal management team
  • Improve the quality of management in law firms and other legal service organizations
  • Represent legal management and managers to the legal community and the community at large

Our Chapter provides Legal Administrators in the Central PA region with the opportunity to network with, and exchange ideas with, other Administrators. We also provide numerous opportunities throughout the year to expand your knowledge with our educational seminars. We hope you will consider joining our dynamic and growing Chapter.
