Welcome to

The website for the First State Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators located in Delaware.

For more information about the Chapter and Association of Legal Administrators, see About ALA.


Welcome to the First State Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators’ website.


Here you will find a host of information including upcoming educational and social events, helpful member and business partner information, and much more!


The Association of Legal Administrators (“ALA”) was founded in 1971 to provide support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government agencies.  The organization now boasts almost 9,000 members, including close to 500 international members.   If you’d like to learn more about ALA, please visit:


In 1979, the First State Chapter was established and actively supports the mission of the ALA.  We currently have over 50 active chapter members.


Why join the First State Chapter? In addition to the rewarding educational programs, leadership events, social events, volunteer events and community outreach projects offered to you as a member of the First State Chapter, one of the greatest benefits of chapter membership is the ability to network with and receive support from others in roles similar to yours.  Our education programs focus on topics specific to your role in the legal industry, whether that be HR Management, Financial Management, Practice Management, Systems Management, Facilities Management, Marketing Management, or in many of our experiences “all-of-the-above”.  


Additionally, through our chapters strong and long-standing Business Partner relationships, our members are connected to outstanding businesses specialized in providing services to law firms and legal departments.  And in return, our Business Partners gain exposure to the finest legal administrators around! Sponsorship packages are available to Business Partners who are looking to build business relationships with the added bonus of enjoying our calendar of social-networking and community events throughout the year!


If you are considering joining our chapter, please contact one of our Board or Committee members with any questions you may have.  We would love for you to join us as a guest at one of our upcoming educational sessions to see for yourself how rewarding your membership with the First State Chapter could be.   Our members, past and present, will agree that joining the First State Chapter of ALA has been a tremendous asset in the personal and professional growth for each of them.  Whether new to the legal world or a tenured legal professional, this organization has so much to offer you.  If you are considering becoming a member, I encourage you to reach out to a past or present member to discuss the impact your membership with the First State Chapter can have on your legal career.   Speaking from personal experience, it is impossible for me to even put a value on what I have gained from being part of this fabulous organization. 


On behalf of the First State Chapter Board of Directors, I welcome you to our website.  Take a look around…we know you’ll like what you see!

On Tuesday, March 27th, the First State Chapter ALA joined by their Business Partners enjoyed networking at a social held at Ernst & Scott Taproom.  While socializing, members and business partners competed at the basketball machine to win gift cards from StarBucks as well as for the top scorer to win the machine at the end of the evening!  Rich Kenney from Tech Solutions won the machine and planned to donate it to the youth group at his church.  It was a great way to celebrate March Madness together!
