Welcome to BCLMA – where leaders in law firm management meet, engage, explore and build their skills.

Our members are law firms, or business entities with legal departments who do not sell products or services (other than legal services), and have at least one full-time employee managing their organization.

There are three categories of individual enrolment: Member Firm Representative, Affiliates and Alumni. We also extend benefits for three months for those “in transition” and in between jobs.
