Founded in 1958, the ALA is a charitable and educational non-profit organization with individual and institutional members nationwide.
The mission of the American Lawyers Alliance is to promote understanding of the American legal system through our national network of lawyers’ spouses. The ALA strives to provide a communication network to bring our unique strengths to the preservation and enhancement of the American legal system, and to preserve the integrity of our legal heritage through citizenship education.
Each year the ALA recognizes teachers, concerned citizens, auxiliaries, and individual members who have excelled in their support of our goals.
The ALA works with more than 90 state and local affiliate groups nationwide.
To foster understanding and respect for the American Legal System.
We nurture the rule of law for freedom’s sake.
Message from the President
What has kept our organization thriving for 56 years? Commitment, leadership, a desire to promoteunderstanding of the American legal system, and a forward looking view of its future.
This organization was founded in Miami in August 1959. It was first called the National Conference of Lawyers’ Wives, then the American Lawyers Auxiliary, and now the American Lawyers Alliance. Its commitment to helping others understand the Rule of Law is stronger now than ever.
To fulfil the mission this year, we have honored three outstanding ladies who have shown dedication to law related education; sponsored a children’s book drive to donate books to a charity and a disadvantaged school in Houston; supported distribution of legal materials to classrooms; and distributed funds to thirteen auxiliaries in support of their law related education projects. In August, we will give scholarships to three outstanding teachers who teach law related education in their classrooms. We will continue to nurture the local auxiliaries.
Priorities for 2014-2015 include a focus on the expanding membership. We want to be proactive in helping others understand more about the US Constitution and better to understand the laws of the land. We want to reach the youth of our country.
We invite you to contact us for information about becoming a member of ALA and to learn how you can support programs that enhance learning the Rule of Law.
