Frequently Asked Questions - Website & Member Portal
When did the website change?
On March 17, 2020 the website and member portal were upgraded to better serve our members.
When I log in, the home page changes - did I do something wrong?
No. Because we know more about you once you log in, we are tailoring different sections of the website to you!
- Practice Groups - the area directly under the main menu will display your current Practice Groups for quick access to your Topical Libraries.
- Upcoming Events - directly under the Practice Groups will display any upcoming events you registered for so you have quick access to plan your travel, get to meeting materials, etc.
- News and Analysis - like the Events adn Education section, this too will pull content more tailored to your intersts.
- Events and Education - we will initially apply filters based on your Practice Groups and Content Preferences so you see the available events and education more aligned with your interests right on the home page, without having to search for it. You can always adjust the filters to broaden the search for that session or change your Content Preferences in your myAHLA portal to adjust them for all future sessions.
You will also see other areas of the website that display related content tailored to your interests or tailored to the content you are reading on the page. We want to make your web experience a more personal experience so you spend less time searching/navigating and more time digesting our rich and high-quality content.
How do I search the Health Law Archive?
Simply start a search at the top of any page. When the results return, you will see a Health Law Archive tab - simply click on it to view those results. We have folded the Health Law Archive into the new website so you do not have to log into the Archive separately or re-key your search terms into the Health Law Archive. As long as you are logged into the website and have access to the Archive through your membership tier or subscription,
