In his “Big Ideas” column, ALA Executive Director Oliver Yandle, CAE, writes about the importance of community within ALA, noting how ALA’s recently launched Online Communities can help members stay connected. “[Community] provides us with a sense of belonging, helps us to learn and grow, and provides a network of support and resources. Our interests, motivation, health and happiness are all inextricably tied to the feeling that we belong to a larger group, sharing common interests and aspirations,” writes Yandle.

Interactive versions of Legal Management are available for iPad and Android tablet devices, and a custom-designed website provides complete access to all issues at www.legalmanagement.org. While each version differs slightly when it comes to functionality, our underlying goals for each format include accessibility, engagement and an intuitive, yet enhanced reading experience.
