Dear Members and friends
We are launching the AALA Members’ Blackboard today.
The AALA Members’ Blackboard is an interactive online discussion forum where members can post anything they would like to share with other members, such as:
Expressions of interest for career opportunities;
Expressions of interest to assist with any particular areas of legal work;
Expressions of interest to collaborate with other practitioners;
Legal industry news;
Health and wellbeing issues;
Cultural diversity issues.
The AALA Members’ Blackboard will assist in building our member-to-member engagement and provide a forum for knowledge sharing. It will also provide a platform to support members’ wellbeing.
A key objective is to provide members with an open and friendly virtual space in which to discuss and inform each other and share ideas, opportunities and concerns.
The pandemic has necessitated changes to the way we interact with each other, to our work schedules, and to our work arrangements. The AALA Members’ Blackboard will facilitate an exchange of members’ ideas so that we can survive and thrive in these challenging times. It will evolve over time, depending on members’ feedback and usage.
The AALA Members’ Blackboard can be accessed via the following link:
