As a new legal office administrator, I signed up for CLM classes in order to increase the depth and breadth of knowledge I would need in order to advance my legal career. It has been everything I expected and more. After over a year of meeting once a month, I have broadened my skills in areas such as financial, human resources, and operations management. Not only have I found our chapter’s CLM support and study group to be a great resource to bounce ideas and questions off of, but I have also gotten to know many of my fellow administrators on a more personal level. The classes have been enriching and we have shared advice on everything from what to do when faced with the sudden death of an employee or attorney to more light-hearted topics such as how to win the showcase showdown on The Price Is Right. It has been a great environment in which to ask more specific, detailed questions and know that we have many great resources and experts who can shed light on particular areas we may not be familiar with. The CLM classes really allowed me to connect with other administrators and increase my engagement in PSALA and it felt great to be able to help others by contributing to various topics with my own experiences. I would highly recommend it to anyone just starting out or functional specialists who would like to learn more about the other components of running a law firm.
