2018 Technology Survey

2017 Compensation Survey

Compensation survey data are invaluable to HR departments as they benchmark salaries and benefits. ILTA’s survey provides an opportunity for deep analysis in roles typically associated with IT services. Each functional area is tiered by level of responsibility; and by filtering on geography, years of experience and firm size, the relevant data that affect compensation levels are easily explored. For an individual, this same type of analysis prepares you for salary discussions with your current or prospective employer.

STEP 4

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).


Start your article with a strong concept or thesis, and craft a strong closing.


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.
