AALL Studies the Current State of the Legal Information Profession

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) released the results of a survey on salaries, benefits, and staffing in the legal information profession (titled “2021 AALL Biennial Salary Survey & Organizational Characteristics”). Its press release states:

The 15th edition of the survey report provides the only comprehensive, comparative salary information designed by and for legal information professionals serving in academic, law firm/corporate, and government settings. The 2021 AALL Salary Survey continues to be updated based on the current environment. …

The 2021 AALL Salary Survey found that the average salary for reference/research law librarians was $91,431 in firm/corporate, $74,227 in academic, and $71,393 in government law libraries. Additionally, the average annual salary for a director or chief law librarian was $162,558 in academia, $144,460 in firm/corporate, and $107,255 in government law libraries.

The AALL Salary Survey has been tracking expenditures on electronic resources since the 1990s, and the 2021 findings showed that those expenses continue to claim a greater portion of the budget for all three types of law libraries relative to 2019. On average, firm/corporate law libraries used 85 percent of their total information budgets on electronic resources, while academic and government law librarians spent 59 and 34 percent, respectively.
