about alpma.

Adding value to the Business of Law.

The Australasian Legal Practice Management Association, (ALPMA), is the peak body representing managers and lawyers with a legal practice management role. Our purpose is to educate, promote and develop legal practice management skills and thought leadership knowledge within the legal industry.

ALPMA provides an authoritative voice on issues relevant to legal practice management.  Members of ALPMA provide professional management services to legal practices in areas of financial management, strategic management, technology, human resources, facilities and operational management, marketing and information services and technology.

Unlike state-based law societies, our focus is 100% on the business side of running a legal practice and our reach is across Australia and New Zealand. We help our members grow their firms, ensure operational efficiency, improve profitability, develop and manage people, create sound strategy and become better leaders in a changing legal landscape.
