AALAM's membership includes over 250 lawyers, judges, law professors, and law students in Massachusetts. 

Events are held every month. In addition, AALAM works closely with the other affinity bar associations in Massachusetts, as well as the Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Bar Association.

    Mentorship program. The Path to Partnership Program includes a Mentorship program for senior associates (senior associates are those who are 1-3 years away from partnership consideration at their firm).  Senior associates will be matched with a volunteer Mentor-Partner for one-on-one mentorship.  AALAM will provide opportunities for mentors and mentees to meet (either in person or virtually).

    Interested?  Use this link to sign up as a Senior Associate-mentee or volunteer as a Partner-Mentor.  Please sign up by September 1, 2024 so we can pair the mentees and mentors and announce the pairings prior to the Kick Off event in September. Our hope is that if you sign up to be a Senior Associate-mentee or a Partner-mentor, you will be able to attend the Kick Off to meet the person you are paired with.

    Please email Kat Delos Reyes or Lindy Reed if you have any questions.
