The annual AmLaw Tech Survey queries CIOs and IT directors from AmLaw 200 firms on a variety of technology-related issues including product preferences for hardware and software, planning and investment, capital and operating expenses, and IT staffing and compensation. Data is available for years 1998 to 2010 to allow for comparison, however, due to modifications made to the questionnaire over time, some questions will not have responses for all years.


The AmLaw Tech Survey is conducted annually in the summer by the editorial research staff of The American Lawyer. Some percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding. Others may exceed 100 percent because firms were allowed to select multiple responses. In most cases, the vendor's name precedes the product unless otherwise noted.
