Welcome to the Houston Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators!  The Association of Legal Administrators is an international organization with over 8,000 members representing law firms and corporate legal departments from all around the world.

The Houston Chapter is one of the oldest and largest chapters.  Chartered in 1974 and incorporated in 1984, our chapter now has nearly 200 members.  Our membership is a diverse group of legal professionals who are committed to advancing the profession of legal administration. 

Our mission is to improve and cultivate the quality of management in legal service organizations through education and sharing of knowledge.  We enhance the competence and professionalism of members of the legal management team and represent the legal industry to the community in a positive manner.  We are committed to diversity and inclusion and strive to nurture our membership so that it reflects the rich diversity of our city.

To accomplish this mission, members of the Houston Chapter have regular opportunities to attend monthly Chapter meetings.  We typically have a guest speaker at our Chapter Meetings who focuses on skill enhancements or legal industry topics.  All of our educational sessions correlate with the CLM requirements and are designed to position our members with the skills and knowledge they need to contribute meaningfully to their organizations.  In addition, we offer both formal and informal networking opportunities, such as chapter retreats, business partner events, and committee projects throughout the year. 

To learn more about the Houston Chapter, we invite you to join us for a monthly meeting or contact a Chapter Board Member for more information.  Our chapter meetings typically take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

On behalf of the entire Houston Chapter, thank you for visiting our website and I hope to see you soon.



Santina Daily, CLM
President, Houston Chapter
