Get Involved

The LII relies on generous contributions of money, time, and talent to keep our site running, keep the content updated, and keep furthering our mission of providing free legal information to everyone, both in the US and around the world. There are many ways you can help support our efforts:

Sponsor our work

The LII offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities to individuals and organizations interested in supporting our efforts to publish online legal collections, the widely-read, objective case previews and timely decisions delivered in our LII Supreme Court Bulletin, our applied research in legal information and online publishing, and our efforts to grow understanding of law through innovative methods like crowd-sourced legal analysis.


If you enjoy writing and editing legal information, the LII wants to hear from you! We are seeking volunteer contributors to help us maintain sections of our site and to help non-legal users find the information they are looking for. We also have academic year opportunities for Cornell Law students, and summer opportunities for law students and students studying computer science, information science, or web development.

Spread the word

A powerful reason for LII's success is the loyalty of our users and their willingness to spread the word about the LII and the free law mission. There are many ways you can help do this, from sharing our posts on Facebook and Twitter, to linking to our website, to singing our praises to your friends and colleagues. Every action helps raise our visibility and ensure that the LII can continue to bring free law to everyone.
