(L) TOP 10 REASONS TO TAKE THE CLM EXAM

the joy of victory and the agony of defeat to build
closer relationships with fellow administrators. Make
sure that your GLA ALA website "My Info" member
profile "I Would Like to Volunteer or Participate in" field
has the "CLM" box check-marked so that you can
receive targeted emails from the chapter about groups
forming usually over the summer.
3. Impress your friends and family by having little
letters behind your name. And, there's more where
those came from whose course of study and
certification processes can help you be an even
better legal administrator: SPHR, SPHRca, PHR,
PMP, CMA, etc.
2 Validate what you do and do not already know. "Job
requirements for principal administrators working
in different environments are not exactly the same.
The content of the CLM exam is targeted to an
individual who is expected to have day-to-day, handson involvement in all areas of legal administration.

skills and the depth and breadth of knowledge that
would enable him or her to visit any 30- to 50-attorney
law office, review practices and procedures, and be
conversant about, and offer advice, in all areas of legal
administration without relying on others. In 2012, ALA
conducted its fourth Competency-Based Education Job
and Needs Analysis. Through this extensive research,
ALA investigated the job of a legal administrator and
identified an impressive 65 competencies (knowledge,
skills and abilities) critical to successfully perform the
administrator's job. These analyses are the guidelines
used in the development of ALA's educational and
certification programs." - ALA CLM Brochure
1. Inspire others. The last time I was in a college class
was in 1980, and I had overwhelming fear about taking
the CLM exam because my collegiate experience wasn't
so pleasant. What I figured out is because people
learn differently, some can study for the CLM using
books and websites, and others like me can get similar
educational benefit from attending Section Meetings,
Chapter Meetings, Regional and Annual Conferences. If
I can do it, YOU can do it, so just do it! n
