Regardless of the stage in your career, certification adds a valuable dimension to your professional development.

ALA's Certified Legal Manager (CLM)® program provides the opportunity to demonstrate you have mastered the knowledge, skills, and abilities to operate at a high level of expertise in the field of legal management.

We recognize that many CLMs and CLM candidates will have great difficulty acquiring in-person CLM credits due to travel restrictions imposed in numerous states, the absence of the 2020 Annual Conference & Expo, and likely changes to firm policies concerning travel or professional development for the remainder of the year. For some, this combination of unique circumstances may make it impossible to gain the credits they need to recertify or apply for the exam.  

Therefore, ALA is temporarily removing the 12-credit cap on self-study and passive learning experience credits. This means that anyone recertifying in June or November 2020, and anyone applying for the November 2020 exam, can earn all needed credits via self-study or passive learning experiences.

If any other issue precludes you from fulfilling recertification or application credit requirements, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]. We will work with you during this difficult time to help you maintain or gain ALA’s CLM, the only legal management credential that demonstrates expertise in the field.
