Our Mission

The International Practice Management Association (IPMA) is the primary source of information and education for managers in law firms, corporations, and law departments. We provide an inclusive community that promotes and enhances the proficiency and professionalism of our members. We deliver practical resources and cutting-edge solutions on the value and management of professionals in the legal environment.

Chapters

Members in the metropolitan communities shown below meet regularly as Chapters. Members of the IPMA located in the geographic proximity of an established chapter are automatically a member of the respective Chapter for no additional dues or fees. All Chapter members must be members of the IPMA in good standing.

IPMA Chapters provide an excellent opportunity for members to have direct peer-to-peer interaction at Chapter events. Individual Business Partners and local representatives of Corporate Business Partner Members are invited to select chapter events with many chapters conducting an annual service providers' event. Programs for chapter meetings have included roundtable discussions on recruiting sources, the evaluation process, orientation and training, and other aspects of managing in a legal environment. Many Chapters invite outside speakers who have given presentations on subjects such as labor law issues, demographics of the future labor pool, networking, and investigation techniques. Check the IPMA calendar for listings of upcoming Chapter events.
