Creating Culturally Competent Law Firms

Cultural competence is an awareness of the cultural differences that makes each person unique; it is the ability to interact with and appreciate belief systems that differ from our own, thereby creating a way for everyone to work cross culturally.

Welcome to the Raleigh Durham Chapter of ALA!

Welcome to the website of the Raleigh Durham Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA).  Founded in the early 1980's, the Chapter has steadily grown to over 60 members from various sized law firms and organizations across Central and Eastern North Carolina.  

The ALA is a global organization comprised of more than 8,500 legal management professionals who work in law firms, corporate legal departments, government organizations, and other legal-related organizations.  ALA is member-driven and strives to continuously elevate the standards of excellence in the legal management profession, through education, leadership development, and through building strong networks among peers and business partners.
