ALA Awards

The international Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) sponsors a spirited competition among its chapters to earn recognition for furthering association goals in a variety of measures. The Awards are presented at a lively reception held at the ALA Annual Educational Conference & Exposition. The Pittsburgh Legal Administrators Association (PLAA) competes annually and proudly has earned many awards over the years. Below are listed just those awards received in the last few years. We recognize the members whose special efforts contributed this success.

Congratulations and thank you for your dedication to the PLAA!
