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, corporations 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.

Business Partner Membership

Business partner membership in the IPMA is open to any individual or entity providing legal-related services, products, or materials that support the association's mission. Business partner members hold non-voting status; however, they may serve on a committee or task force with approval by the IPMA Board of Directors and/or as a chapter co-chair with chapter membership and IPMA Board approval. Business partner membership shall be in the name of one business or organization. Additional business/organization names require separate memberships.

The IPMA offers two types of Business Partner Membership:

Below are the membership benefits associated with each membership type (if you wish to change your membership type, please contact IPMA member services). All IPMA dues are based on a calendar year ending December 31.
