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.

Step 3

If your pitch is accepted, please observe ILTA's publishing guidelines, deadlines and word count. Submit your final draft of the article by the deadline as a Word document. Include a brief bio (50 words) and a hi-res headshot.

Step 4

You write, we edit. Each article goes through an iterative editing process. ILTA reserves the right to edit an article to conform to our house style rules and flow well with other content in a publication.

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.

Want your brand to reach over 24,000 legal IT professionals?
