Salary Survey

  • Bookmark and Share

As legal information professionals’ roles and work environments have changed over the years, it has become increasingly important to provide useful information for budgeting and salary negotiations. AALL has conducted the AALL Biennial Salary Survey & Organizational Characteristics (AALL Salary Survey) since 1993 to provide comparable and comprehensive salary information for legal information professionals who work in law school, law firm/corporate, and government law libraries.

The AALL Salary Survey is the only source of comprehensive, comparative salary information for legal information professionals. It provides salary data for 25 law library positions broken out by many different characteristics, including location, number of people supervised, education, and years of experience. Additional breakouts specific to each library type are also included. 


The AALL Salary Survey is available online or in hardcopy format. 

The digital edition is a member-only benefit.
