About the LII

Welcome to the LII

Thank you for wanting to learn more about the LII. We are a small research, engineering, and editorial group housed at the Cornell Law School in Ithaca, NY. Our collaborators include publishers, legal scholars, computer scientists, government agencies, and other groups and individuals that promote open access to law, worldwide.

Here you can learn about all the things we do to ensure that the law remains free and open to everyone, which includes supporting global expansion of the free access to law movement, serving government, empowering citizens, serving the legal profession, and developing web science for the law.

Founded in 1992, we currently serve over 30 million unique visitors each year. We rely on diverse support from donors, advertisers, partnership projects, and Cornell Law School for the fund necessary to carry out our work.
