Professional Legal Management WeekSM (PLMW) provides a forum for recognizing those in legal management for what they do and the role they play in the success of the organization, and in its service to its clients and those who work in the organization.

In 2012, ALA will augment ongoing activities that have traditionally been coordinated around a particular week of recognition. The Association and its chapters will pursue other collaborative projects on a regular basis. As a result, ALA will deemphasize the PLMW label and expand year-round efforts to recognize and increase the value of professional legal management.


The objectives are:

  • To provide awareness, understanding and education about the legal management profession, and
  • To increase knowledge of the diverse roles within the profession.


The goal is:

To communicate to stakeholders, and others, the importance and need for a professional management team in all facets of enterprise leadership.
