Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce legal manager Shelby M. Nusrala attended the annual Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) conference on October 3 through October 6 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

At the conference, Shelby was able to gain knowledge from top professionals in the areas of communication, finance, human resources, information technology and operations management as it relates to the legal industry.  Her favorite session was a deep dive and discussion into what we can do to positively influence culture in our law, which was co-presented by one of the people she admires and respects most in the industry, Judy Hissong.

Since becoming a member of Kansas City Association of Legal Administrators (KCALA) in February 2019, Shelby has taken an active role in the organization, which included serving on the board of directors for the 2020-2021 term.

In June, Shelby was selected as a scholarship recipient from the KCALA to attend the ALA annual conference. The conference was an opportunity for Shelby to learn about hot topics in the legal world, earn Certified Legal Manager (CLM) and Professional in Human Resources (PHR) recertification credits, hear from vendors about the latest ways to make the firm more efficient, and meet colleagues from across the U.S.

The ALA is the premier professional association connecting leaders and managers within the legal industry. It provides extensive professional development, collaborative peer communities, strategic operational solutions, and business partner connections empowering our members to lead the business of law.
