Note to PR companies
Press releases and features
Legal IT Insider is interested in all news stories, product launches, new wins, new hires, corporate news and success stories/case studies/thought leader pieces that are of genuine relevance to our readers. We have a strict no stiffing policy. We do not carry advertorial or charge suppliers for carrying their press releases. All stories are reported purely on their editorial merits. If you want to vet anything we write about you before we print it, forget it – we do not submit to copy controls.
Because we are news rather than advertising driven we do not operate a conventional ‘August special focus on time & billing systems’ style editorial calendar. If something is topical, we report it. We know our readers are busy people who just want the facts and opinion – not padding, spin and hype. We are happy to receive press releases via email as plain text, attached Word files or PDFs. The length for success stories/thought leaders should be circa 600-650 words. We do not worry about how you compose your press releases as we will edit them for length and house-style. One final point, as it does cause confusion from time to time, we only look at legal IT from the point of view of the technology lawyers use, as distinct from the legal issues surrounding the use of technology generally.
