ILTA's 2024 Editorial Calendar

One of ILTA's most valued resources is our volunteer authors — knowledgeable and experienced professionals from our member and vendor communities. It's the wealth of educational content that comes from folks in the trenches that is so valuable to our readers; and we are grateful to our authors for sharing the information and experience they've acquired. If you'd like to contribute an article to ILTA, we want to help you get your idea approved and make sure your piece is published in the best possible light.

It's truly a win-win: You and your organization get exposure to the most attentive audience of legal technology professionals in the world, and we get to publish articles that keep our readers informed, educated and coming back for more.

Publishing Guidelines

Every submission should be an original, educational piece. Do not spotlight specific products or companies; rather, write about challenges and solutions with technology or administrative procedures (we love case studies).

Consider including a short sidebar piece in your article, especially if you conduct an interview, want to include a list or have other related information that doesn’t quite fit in the article. Also consider using subheads and bullet lists.

Do not include footnotes, diagrams or images. Citations should be incorporated into the context of the article.

Keep your audience in mind. ILTA's readers are technology professionals in law firms and corporate legal departments. Consider their knowledge as you write.
