New CAALA website is designed to meet members’ needs

New inductees to CAALA Hall of Fame to be honored at dinner June 8

2023 April

New website

Last year, CAALA set out to create a new website – one that would represent an organization 74 years in the making and over 4,100 members strong. After hundreds of hours of work and input from members, staff and outside vendors, the new site is now ready, offering even more benefits to you, our members. 

The following are just some of the benefits of the new site:

Cleaner navigation to improve the user experience and make finding information faster and easier.

Quick access to CAALA’s calendar of events and registration.

Enhanced document bank with tens of thousands of documents relevant to your practice.

Access to information about LASC, such as judge assignments, Resolve Law LA virtual MSC program for personal injury and employment cases, etc.

Improved platform to access CAALA’s social media, upcoming newsletter, and other information.

Tablet- and mobile device-responsive for ease of use in court or elsewhere.

Backend intranet to run CAALA’s list serves, and provide communications for the board, members and staff.

Automation of CAALA’s PAC contributions.

Easier access to vendors sponsoring CAALA and the services they offer.

Built for your practice today and the future with improved operation, security and layout to enhance your experience.
