This post is the first in our "InsideLegal Recommends" series.
Over the years, InsideLegal has sort of evolved into a resource hub for useful legal sites, surveys, content, events, influencers and associations/special interest groups, etc. and we are often one of the first resources people come across when researching the legal business space. Often, we are making recommendations on resources that not only help new companies navigate their way, but also established companies keep current with the changes taking place.
What a better way to start off 2015 then to share some of our favorite freebies? In our first 'Legal Market Resources' post, we're focusing on industry surveys and legal technology publications that are valuable but also free. (For details on each, hover over the graphics.)

Of course, there are oodles of publications, in print, online, digital, etc. that provide valuable legal and legal technology insights and content. ALM Media alone offers 20+ national and regional legal magazines; the ABA and its various practice areas publish hundreds of specialized newsletters and bulletins, and most state bar associations produce their own newsletters. Our very short 'shortlist' is focused on those that you may not have bookmarked yet and can subscribe to for free.
