This may be one of my most valuable Website of the Week posts, so don’t stop reading early.
I have been a member of the Association of Legal Administrators for ten years now. We have a great local chapter in Oklahoma City. It is too bad I often have conflicts and have to miss their monthly meetings. If your law firm administrator does not belong to this national organization, your firm is missing out on lots of resources, training and (in the cities for certain) a peer support group. Check out ALA’s Website for more information.
But that’s not my Website of the Week. I’m highlighting a subpart of that site. Legal Management magazine is the ALA’s publication and one of its member benefits. It is a very nice publication. My Website of the Week is the ALA’s Legal Management archives. There you can download many articles from the prior issues of Legal Management. You will find a wealth of information there on all aspects of managing law firms. ALA would have been well within its rights to lock up these archives as a member’s only benefit. But instead they are available to all of you online.
And, no, I’m not just touting Legal Management this month because I was the co-author of the cover story on mobile technology security (July/August 2007.) But here’s a link to the current issue of Legal Management.
