Our Mission

The International Practice Management Association (IPMA) is the premier resource for information and education on the management of paralegals and other practice support professionals in law firms and law departments globally. Its mission is to advocate for the effective use and management of these professionals, to promote and enhance the proficiency and professionalism of its members, and to provide thought leadership to the membership, the legal industry and the public at large on the value of utilization and management of paralegals and other practice support professionals.

Membership

Membership in the International Practice Management Association is available to paralegal managers and other practice support managers in law firms, corporations, government, judicial, or legal agencies. Membership is also available to those individuals who may be otherwise involved in practice support management, or who serve as providers of services and products of interest to practice support managers.

As the only association for paralegal managers and other practice support managers, this organization provides a wealth of resources to support the profession. Many of these resources can be found on this website, and to access them, you must be logged in as an IPMA member.

Interaction with peers is a key element in the success of the IPMA and its members. You are automatically enrolled as a member of your local chapter as applicable. Although your contact information is sent to the chair of your local chapter, you may want to contact the chair to introduce yourself and to ensure you are on their communication distribution list. Visit the chapter chair list for contact details.

If there is no chapter within a reasonable distance from your location, you are invited to participate in chapter meetings by phone. Please contact IPMA headquarters about joining multiple chapters if you are interested in markets outside your office location. The IPMA also hosts quarterly Members Talk Live! conference calls as well as quarterly IPMA Affinity Group calls.

In addition to the many management and professional development resources and opportunities found on this website, consider signing up for the IPMATalk online discussion group. IPMATalk provides an excellent means to pose questions to participating members and receive answers on a very timely basis.
