Welcome to the website of the Indiana Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators. The Association of Legal Administrators is the undisputed leader in the business of law and law practice management. Our Chapter has approximately 74 members representing private law firms from solo practitioners to some of the nation’s largest law firms, government agencies, and corporate legal departments throughout Indiana. The members are comprised of legal administrators/managers with expertise in the areas of Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, Benefits Administration, Office Administration and Facilities & Operations Management. Through the help and participation of many of our members, we were able to earn the Presidents’ Award of Excellence for the fifth consecutive year. We are able to accomplish this level of success because of how well our members work together and enjoy each other's company. There is no better way to grow in the legal field than with the support of ALA.

On behalf of our entire Chapter, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our many loyal Business Partners who have supported our Chapter for many years and to welcome those Business Partners who are new to our Chapter this year. We thank you for the many privileges and educational opportunities you afford us through your generous sponsorships and your business and product advice in all areas of our daily work. Your partnership with our Chapter adds significant value to the benefits of membership, and we sincerely appreciate your participation. If you are interested in becoming a Business Partner, please contact Laura Rust at [email protected]

The Chapter conducts educational luncheon meetings throughout the year which encompass a variety of timely topics. If you are not a current member and would like to attend a luncheon, please contact Susan Cutsinger at [email protected] to attend as our guest.  I am confident you will come away with an understanding and appreciation of the value the Chapter can provide to you and your firm.  If you are not able to attend a luncheon, we have podcasts as well as guest speaker handouts available for you to view post-meeting.

With the payment of your dues there are several programs and networking opportunities made available. In addition to the educational luncheon meetings, we have scheduled:

  • Educational and Business Partner Forum
  • Annual Partner Event
  • Community Connections Service Project
  • Annual Holiday Event
  • Networking/Social Events with Business Partners
  • Periodic extended educational seminars
