About Us

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators was formed in 1977 to provide a forum for the growing number of professionals in the field of law office administration in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Chapter has members representing private law firms, corporations, government and other legal organizations.

The primary purposes of the Association are to:

  • Develop and deliver educational programs and collect information of value to members and their firms.
  • Promote an exchange of information regarding the increasingly complex responsibilities of legal administration.
  • Alert legal organizations to the value and availability of professional administrators, and to provide a forum for bringing them together.

What We Do

The Golden Gate Chapter provides over 20 development sessions each year. Monthly programs are divided into four sections: Finance, Human Resources, Leadership & Management, and Operations & Technology. We also offer periodic programs that focus on larger issues of interest.
Besides focusing on issues in the legal industry, the Golden Gate Chapter is also committed to community service. Each year, the Chapter partners with various community service organizations to donate time to a specific community activity or project.
