ALA e-Learning

Start the New Year with HR Skill Building

ALA's e-learning courses provide legal management education in a flexible format. Students simply tune in once a week for an hour for six weeks, choosing between the live sessions (where they can participate in discussions and exercises) or the on-demand versions once they're available. Overall, the courses are designed to be a deep dive into relevant, timely content that students can immediately put to use at their office.

The next available course is HR1: Employee Selection & Promotion, which includes facilitated discussions, lectures, case studies and assignments. Participants will earn essential knowledge about recruiting, selecting and promoting law firm personnel, as well as recent developments in anti-harassment requirements, benefits contributions and questioning candidates about their salary history. Registration is open through January 11. The course commences the week of January 14.

 

Interested in earning a Legal Management HR Specialist Certificate? Participate in both HR1 and HR2 to be eligible to take the certificate exam. You can register for both courses at a discounted rate.
