Practice Management Learning & Development Framework

The ALPMA Legal Practice Management Learning & Development Framework outlines the key ‘pillars’ of knowledge that legal practice managers and law firm leaders need to understand in order to effectively manage and lead their firms.  All our events, programs and resources (including the ALPMA website) are designed to deliver content aligned to this framework.


Practice Management Seminars                                          Find a Seminar

ALPMA’s well-respected and popular practice management seminars enhance the skills and professional knowledge of managers and lawyers with management responsibility at law firms and legal departments – and provide a great forum for networking amongst our close-knit community.  Free for our members, these seminars are held regularly at lunchtime in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland.
Seminars cover topical subjects spanning ALPMA’s Legal Practice Management Learning and Development Framework, presented by dynamic speakers with deep subject matter expertise and extensive legal industry experience. Typically attracting between 30 and 100 attendees (depending on topic and location) our seminars run for 1.5 hours commencing with 30 minutes of networking followed by the guest speaker presentation. 

Eligible non-members can purchase tickets to attend. ALPMA Corporate Partners are the only vendors able to attend our Practice Management Seminars.

Our seminars are recorded live and available free to members to view in the ALPMA On-Demand Learning Centre. Some seminars are also available for purchase by non-members.

Our Webinars are scheduled to take place each month and are designed to meet the practice management professional development needs of leaders in law firms in Australia and New Zealand.

Our Webinar program includes a series of eight lunchtime webinars (AEST) where expert speakers are broadcast live online via Zoom and cover topics within our L&D Framework.

Participation in Webinars is free for ALPMA members and $99 (including GST) for eligible non-members.
