Legal IT Insider

News you can use


Since its launch in 1995, Legal IT Insider has become the leading media, information and communications channel for legal technology. As one national newspaper said: “There is no doubt that the Legal IT Insider newsletter was a brainwave and has been a tremendous influence throughout the legal technology world for many years.”


We cover and interpret legal IT news from UK & EMEA, the US and APAC regions from the perspective of law firms, in-house legal teams and tech vendors in our famous FREE monthly digital newsletter – Legal IT Insider, aka ‘The Orange Rag’. We publish daily news and analysis on our website via our latest news section, opinion pieces, product intelligence, comment and articles. Our content, including the Top 200 chart, is also available via this FREE iOS iPhone and iPad app.


Read by all serious legal IT professionals around the world


Legal IT professionals use our newsletter and resources to make strategic decisions for their businesses as they know they can find unbiased, relevant information curated into concise, easy-to-read content and delivered online, email, RSS, iPad and iPhone.


Elevating the significant above the noise


Legal IT Insider has become synonymous with identifying emerging trends and markets in business technology that relate to legal IT and then, crucially, its application in law office management. We separate the facts from the hype and provide future-looking insight and key metrics to help you plan, prioritise and respond to opportunities and so deal with challenges ahead of time. More intelligence equals more power.


Always ahead


We have always been ahead of the curve and pioneers in publishing platforms: we were the first legal IT newsletter in the market, the first to go digital, the earliest website, the first blog (and most successful) and first with a new generation of apps for the iPad era. We have a history of predicting future IT topics before they become mainstream and keep ahead of trending news with an eye on global connectivity and emerging technologies and markets.


Our reputation


What differentiates us is that we are independent, not driven by sponsors or partners, so our reputation is impeccable for unbiased, newsworthy news. Long term relationships and networks built on trust mean we are often the first media called with the latest breaking news and exclusives. We also have a solid reputation that if we are given information but it is not for release, or available until a certain date, it is safe with us.



Caroline Hill, Editor-in-Chief


Caroline Hill joined the Insider as Associate Editor in August 2014 and took over as Editor in November 2015. A lawyer in a former life, Caroline qualified as a litigator with Norton Rose (now Norton Rose Fulbright) and has been a legal journalist for over a decade, most recently as News Editor for Legal Business. Having started in journalism as a reporter, then a senior reporter for Legal Week, Caroline has also spent time as a freelance journalist, writing articles and reports for a number of publications and corporate organisations, as well as having her own twice-monthly column with Legal Week, which focussed on the issues facing the in-house legal market. Caroline joined the Insider to help expand its focus to include the in-house/corporate counsel sector as well as the increasing synergy of legal technology with legal business as we move into the “New Law” era.


Charles Christian, Editor-at-large
