Founded in 1937, TLA is an independent bar association of approximately 900 members who are in-house, government, and private practice attorneys and practice primarily in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Whether in advice, litigation, or regulatory assistance, members assist providers and commercial users of domestic and international logistics and transportation services. As commercial transportation is a specialized area of the law, TLA is dedicated to keeping its members ahead of the constant changes governing all aspects of the supply chain and passenger travel. With commitment to excellence in continuing legal education, and a long tradition of collegiality and exchange of ideas, TLA provides a collaborative resource for lawyers seeking to maximize the quality of the legal services they provide and enhance their professional lives.
