Middle Tennessee Association
of Legal Administrators
In the spring of 1979, a small group of law firm leaders in Nashville, Tennessee met to discuss law firm salaries and benefits. The ideas planted grew and that same year eight individuals held their first organization meeting to form the MTALA chapter. The National Association of Legal Administrators reviewed and approved the application and Charter, and on April 17, 1980, MTALA was officially chartered at a special meeting nearly one year after that first initial meeting.
