Morton & Gettys COO earns Certified Legal Manager Designation

Robin Owens

ROCK HILL, SC - Robin Owens, the chief operating officer at Morton & Gettys, has earned the Certified Legal Manager designation from the Association of Legal Administrators.

Earning the CLM® credential involves meeting work experience requirements that include at least three years of day-to-day, hands-on involvement in all areas of legal administration. Financial management, human resources management and development, information systems management, and legal-industry trends are some of the key areas.

Certified legal managers also must complete coursework and pass a comprehensive, four-hour examination that proves their proficiency in those core areas. Certificate holders must complete continuing education hours in order to be recertified every three years.

The Association of Legal Administrators developed the CLM program to allow legal management professionals to demonstrate mastery of the core knowledge essential for principal administrators at law firms. The CLM designation identifies experienced legal managers who understand the unique issues of law firm management.

“We are incredibly proud of Robin and all of her hard work and countless hours she dedicated to earning this certificate,” firm co-founder John Gettys said. “This achievement is not only a credit to Robin, but also to our firm.”

Owens joined Morton & Gettys in 2002. A magna cum laude graduate of Winthrop University with a bachelor’s degree in government and public service, she lives in Rock Hill with her husband Roger. They have two adult daughters.
