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.


Local Seminar & Networking Events

Find a Seminar

ALPMA’s branches across Australasia organise a variety of local events, including our well-respected and popular practice management seminars. These 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.

Each branch can organise events to suit the needs of their members, including special interest events, such as Victoria’s Small Firm Management group, and online Member Connect sessions.

Full ALPMA Members may attend any local event for free and Online Members may attend online events for free. Eligible non-members can purchase tickets to attend.

ALPMA Corporate Partners are the only vendors able to attend our Practice Management Seminars.



ALPMA Webinars

Find a Webinar

We run multiple Webinars each month, designed to meet the practice management professional development needs of leaders in law firms across Australia and New Zealand. At ALPMA, we recognise that firms face specific operating challenges, compounded by the changing legal landscape - and our webinars provide you with a convenient way of gaining practical, hands-on advice and strategies to help you ensure your firm thrives and prospers.

Our Webinar program includes a series of 16 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 $37 (including GST) for eligible non-members.
