ILTA Online Communities (aka eGroups, forums, communities of interest) are the go-to-space where legal technologists connect, discuss challenges, find solutions, and develop ideas. These topic-specific discussion spaces provide access to libraries of file uploads, pertinent blogs, and relevant events hosting like-minded individuals.
"I love ILTA forums. The knowledge I have obtained has paid for my membership several times over. I read about things over my head, answer things I have experience with and ask specific questions about things important to my firm. Specifically, I have chosen a backup solution due to ILTA forum suggestions, changed User Rights for security, purchased a Large File Transfer solution also due to ILTA info. I have no doubt our firm has a much more secure environment because of what I have pulled from ILTA forums. Additionally, I believe I get a sense of what solutions are good values and save money from that knowledge."

"When I started in legal a little over four years ago, I knew from experience that the best way to learn is through mentoring and online resources. The ILTA online community is the best resource in LegalTech. You get to pick the brains of professionals at every level from hundreds of firms. Regardless of the size of a firm, ILTA members are always happy to help and provide the best recommendations and insight. Not only that but there are also vendor-specific forums where you can hear from them directly. You may even make some friends as I have along the way. We are a community that grows by helping each other. I highly recommend the ILTA communities and getting involved as often as you can!"
"ILTA online communities have given me the tools needed to grow as an IT professional in the legal industry. It has allowed me to network with those in different geographic locations and provide me with insights to trends in technology. It is a great resource that I have available to me."
Your resource for reliable insights, trends, and more. The ILTA Content Coordinating Teams and ILTA Staff collaborate with experts in the global legal technology community to produce resources that make your business as informed and efficient as possible.
"I enjoy the variety of topics-there really is one for every sort of ILTA member. There are episodes on improving client-firm relationships, toolkits for different practice support groups, data retention, analytics, and their use, career development advice—really there are too many topics to highlight, but all the pods are very well done. I also appreciate that ILTA is intentional about highlighting the voices of women—there is even a podcast series devoted to influential women in legal tech."
"ILTA Radio connects good technology with a good story. Our many podcast series span the gamut of innovation, mixed with practical knowledge, mixed with a little fun. They highlight the best of ILTA and ILTAns and I find that the HopsCast and Getting a Seat at the Table series both push those boundaries of relevant content and personal. Tech is so formal sometimes; it's good to take a step back and see how tech and people mingle."
"I enjoy contributing as an ILTA blog author because it gives me the opportunity to share ideas and work with talented colleagues in the legal technology community. The ILTA blog format is a great vessel for introducing the legal community to leading-edge thought leadership in technology and innovation."
ILTA offers legal professionals a safe space for developing and showcasing their leadership skills. Active participation in ILTA unlocks countless opportunities to boost your confidence, build your soft skills, and shape your trajectory as a leader. ILTA is committed to providing a safe environment where you can practice your leadership skills without the burden of having a formal leadership role.
"ILTA provides a safe environment to develop and train your leadership skills without the burden of having a formal leadership role. By engaging in ILTA’s initiatives (volunteer roles, online communities, local gatherings, virtual events, conferences) one can master public speaking, connect with tough leaders in the industries and learn from them, find a mentor, and so much more."
"I am thankful for the ability to meet so many people from diverse backgrounds and incredible Thought Leaders in this industry. When you are doing this thing we call IT we tend to forget there are so many of us out there that are doing the same things day in and day out."
"While this may come as a surprise to some, I began speaking at ILTA and other events as a member to get over my fear of public speaking. Now it is a big part of my job and one of the things I enjoy the most. This never would have happened without ILTA."
"ILTA has certainly helped me on my journey to achieving a leadership position by providing me with writing and panel speaking opportunities, growth within the wider Legal Technology community, and a huge sense of support through that community. Involvement in ILTA's Special Interest Groups and roundtables have also helped me gain deeper insight into common industry trends and peer experience and given me a greater understanding of how to support Legal Tech initiatives and grow adoption through the sharing of use cases and best practices."
"I really enjoy sharing thought leadership pieces with the ILTA community. It’s always great to share the work I am doing with my peers across the industry, but the real value comes with the rich conversations that follow. And those conversations foster great new relationships, and they always give me exciting new ideas to bring back to my firm around new ways to use data or how to improve the users' experience."
"Keno Kozie has been a supporter of ILTA for many years. In addition to sponsoring their Annual Conference, we have done everything from taking part in Roadshows to advertising and authoring articles in their quarterly publication – Peer to Peer. We have found them to be a great organization for us to be part of and enjoy being able to look for opportunities to share our knowledge and expertise with their members. Being able to provide content through bylined articles and white papers for Peer to Peer has proven to be a great way for us to communicate with the ILTA members on topics that are relevant, valuable, and timely to their organization."
What sets ILTA apart is the peer power behind it. The ILTA Community is collegial, ready to provide solutions, recommendations, career advice, and so much more! Simply, ILTA is where you are because it's made up of individuals from across the legal spectrum: new to legal, mid-career, and thought leaders. ILTAns want to help you succeed in whatever stage of your career is next.
"I originally became a member of ILTA when I worked for a law firm. Over 10 years ago when I switched to a job in a corporate legal department, I soon found my needs from this organization changed. The first ILTACON I attended as a corporate member I quickly found a new network of peers that have become invaluable to me over the course of my career. The corporate members were so welcoming and introduced me to the value I can get from my membership from the law department perspective. I enjoy participating in webinars, utilizing the Community of Interest, and of course ILTACON. ILTA also has a Corporate Legal page on its website with helpful resources and information. I think the main difference in this organization vs other professional associations is our membership goes beyond GC’s, attorneys, and Legal Operation professionals. I am most grateful for the meaningful personal connections I have made over the years.""
"Ever since joining ILTA 6 years ago, I’m amazed at the level of continual knowledge sharing and collaborations amongst the members. Members volunteer their time to plan awesome educational content (ILTACON, Virtual Sessions, Local Events, etc.) and are eager to help with questions posted on the Community eGroups. Personally, it’s the professional connections that come with working on educational sessions and volunteering together at events. Because of this external pool of resources that I can leverage, my contributions to my organization are that much more enriched!"
"Volunteering with ILTA is a whole new world with access to unlimited connections, a wealth of resources, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to further your personal and professional development in legal tech. I am enjoying my time with ILTA every day and can’t recommend it enough!"
"Volunteering with ILTA has been extremely rewarding, both personally and professionally. As a volunteer, I have received tremendous support and encouragement from ILTA’s leadership. I have also had the opportunity to meet other individuals in litigation support and eDiscovery around the world. The scope, breadth, and dedication of ILTA's volunteers are incredible. Volunteering is an excellent way to share thoughts and ideas with others who are equally as invested in making the community as collaborative and inclusive as possible."
"My experience as a Volunteer with the ILTA CCT has been amazing! Participating as a Volunteer in this capacity has provided me with two great opportunities. First, the opportunity to bring my experience and the voice of many amazing professionals from South America to the content that we create for corporate professionals; and second, the opportunity to connect with peers, leaders of the industry, organization staff, and Board members!"
