Salary Survey

IMLA creates a Compensation Report to help provide a tool for municipalities with budgetary responsibilities and bench-marking. The Compensation Report is the result of research and analysis conducted by IMLA that culminates in an approximately 75 page report related to local government attorney and support staff salaries and other internal metrics related to law office management. The report includes salary data for 24 job classifications, including both attorney and support staff position and the data is ultimately broken down in a variety of ways including by size and geographic region.

The pricing structure for the final report is:

IMLA Members and Nonmembers who complete the survey – FREE

IMLA Nonmembers who do NOT complete the survey – $499
