Driven by constant innovations in technology, new developments in the law, and ever-changing economic considerations, the role of the legal administrator continues to expand. The South Carolina Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (SCALA) provides support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government legal agencies throughout the entire state of South Carolina. The mission of SCALA, as well as ALA, is to “promote and enhance the competence and professionalism of legal administrators and all members of the management team.”
SCALA provides its members with a wealth of information through peer contact and educational meetings featuring well-known speakers from all over the country. Many of these presentations will receive CLE accreditation from the SC Bar. Also this year, SCALA will have several meetings geared solely towards general discussions among peers. Through these Round Table Discussions, members and guests will attack immediate issues head on.
SCALA currently assists more than 50 law firm administrators from all over the state of South Carolina. We would like for your firm management to be a part of our organization as well.
